I've made my opinions on the file-sharing debate known before. If this is true, it's just one more example as to how the RIAA is a bunch of cocksucking assholes.

Music piracy is illegal, and the record companies have a right to do work to put a stop to it. However, their methods leave a lot to be desired. We have a word for people who take the law into their own hands: vigilantes. Vigilantes are generally frowned upon since, at least technically, we have groups of people devoted to fighting crime. Until the RIAA becomes a division of the LAPD, they should not be allowed to do shit like this.

This isn't the first time the RIAA has deemed itself judge, jury, and executioner. Like remember that plan to allow the RIAA to break into suspected offenders' computers and fuck them up? It even had the support of some real bright pennies like Orrin Hatch.

While we're at it, I'm going to send up a call for Orrin Hatch to be raped by an eight-dicked walrus.

If the RIAA wants to keep an eye out for pirates, that's fine. But when it comes time to propagate threats or take action, they need to at least be doing it through official channels. Of course, when they do use the criminal justice system, that often opens up a whole new can of worms, but we'll leave it alone for now. At least until they decide to start suing 12-year-olds again.
