  1. Everyone should change their username to the default username (i.e. kazaaliteuser@Kazaa), depending on what P2P you’re using. Also K-lite ++ blocks RIAA ip’s and many others…

  2. So, when the RIAA’s sued the majority of the U.S. population, then we can have them shut down, right?

    Anyone considering firebombing their corporate HQ? :P These corporate jerks who try to divert the evolution of this country’s freedom need to be beaten with a banana.

  3. Cosmo, changing your kazaa username does nothing to prevent the RIAA from obtaining your IP address. And K-lite does have a few RIAA IP’s blacklisted but getting around the blacklist is a peice of cake. Don’t think you’re safe because you’re using K-lite.

  4. The record industry should sue Sony, Microsoft and other makers of CD reproduction equipment. They certainly have a part in progressing the “problem”.
