The RIAA have finally managed to shut down and claim hefty damages from file-sharing network Grokster. Millions of musicians worldwide are eagerly anticipating a hefty payout of the damages being claimed in their name as I type. Oh, hang on...

And without wishing to put ideas into the RIAA's collective heads - why aren't they going after P2P networks and torrent services that people actually use? It's almost as if they have absolutely no fucking idea what they're doing, but I'm sure that can't be the case.

I imagine that the file-sharers have probably all sold their computers and are going to take a couple of months to think about the errors of their ways in the wake of this ruling. I suppose there's an outside chance that someone might just invent a new one and everything will carry on like it did before. Only faster.

It seems unlikely though.

The RIAA office : A celebratory mood tonight.
