also what I dont get is HOW the RIAA manages to get the information (i.e the ISP names as well as any IP addresses) from the users on Kazaa. It's not like you can press a button on Kazaa and the IP/domain pops up, the RIAA is using some form of hacking (which last time I checked, IS illegal) to gather information about the users. and collection of otherwise private information illegally like that should be stopped, and when that happens the RIAA would be no more.
anyways I'm not scared of the RIAA, i have plenty of copyrighted material on my hard drive that I did not pay for, and yes, I do fucking share it as well. They can fuck off for all I care. Using their greedy tactics and idle threats are not gonna stop me from what I'm doing.
What can Kazaa do to work their way around this, for one, make the program so the outgoing IP address from the user who is sharing their material is encrypted, so there is no way for them to find out the IP address of the user using software that will display incoming/outgoing connections. software encryption/decryption od IP addresses inside the Kazaa software (hopefully its doable) would be a good idea.
