Anyone want to setup P2P in Irag?

Just had this really good idea that would really mess up the RIAA.

If anyone sets up a P2P network in an anti-america country (i.e. Irag or Cuba) the RIAA would be powerless to do anything about it.

Anyone want to do it????

I somehow doubt Saddam or Fidel would let you.

If you want to make the RIAA powerless: Find a spot somewhere in the remotest of Africa. Set up a P2P server. Set up a sattelite, and pay thousands to connect via sattelite. I'm talking a real sattelite, not a cheap RCA DBS kind.
I would doubt getting p2p shares from Iraq or Cuba. They would be downloaded on slow and laggy bandwitdh.

If Cuba / China / N.Korea were communist countries in the true meaning of the word, then they would allow P2P without a thought. But of course as we all know (/me looks at Bilbo) all communist movements in power degenerate into brutal virtual dictatorships.

If you really want to make the RIAA powerless, and save your money too, buy your records from independant labels.
