    They're just doing what any cartel would do; fight to sustain themselves as the gatekeepers of their interests. In this case, it's the entertainment cartel

    Since piracy is illegal, I say go for it. If people still want to take the risk, then they can.

    EDIT: Before anyone else chews me out for the above statement, let me explain that I don't think this will EVER go through, it is plain ridiculous and two wrongs don't make a right. The fact that needs to be faced here is that people know they are doing something illegal and immoral and they continue it. The entertainment industry I think it doing it as a publicity stunt to try to bring attention to the problem.

    All I can say, is if by some freak of stupidity this all goes through, they'd better be ready to settle class-action lawsuits lodged by those that are flagged as false-positives.

    Something else to think about; if this does go through, their scheme is going to come to a grinding halt as *NOBODY will dare* to buy a CD, or a DVD, or a game disc or other forms of legally obtained entertainment. As I see it, the companies are gonna lose more money when/if this all backfires than they would if they just find more ethical means of combating the problems.

    Just my two cents...

    I have music on my computer that isn't shared with anyone and is a backup of a CD/tape/record that I own, I wonder if this 'software' will be capable of knowing that. I don't think I need to say anything more.

    Thing is this is going to affect consumers not the pirates, and anyway once a computer virus is released, there's no control over it.

    They would have to embed a virus in all their media, which would mean one of 2 things either it could be overcome by regular people, (ie Virus checkers would be able to remove it from ripped audio files) or it wouldn't and it'd kill their own business as much as the pirates, in fact doing this the stupid people (in the first case) would need to get the files from a pirate so their computer wouldn't be affected.

    or do they plan on launching viruses at websites and starting a cyber war? something they'd loose, look at how 4chan can crash servers the pirate 'community' would be just as easy to radicalize against them if this happened. And that's without the pro-hackers, those that'd just like to put an end to their art form being used maliciously and even trained to people who don't deserve the power (for learning stuff for yourself is the only way to become a serious hacker), getting involved and taking them on in a more major way.

    For some reason I now actually want this to go through. I'd never buy from them again, and neither would anyone else, it'd kill them, and that only makes things better for the independent side of the industry like youtube/itunes media creators

    I'm all for the RIAA/MRAA hacking pirates computers, controlling their every move and looking through their history.
    The problem needs a hell of a lot more attention than its getting, and I think the entertainment industry is doing a good job.

    You know it gives them the right to hack the computers of innocent people too don't you Balto and lets them go through all your most private stuff snoop on everything you do to find out if you're a criminal. I can't believe you'd like to live in 1984.

    What, they don't think the P2P sharers & Pirates won't be able to find a way around a plan like this? It will go the way of all game protection, hacks, cracks and keygens will be distributed to combat it a few days after the initial release, and the only people who will suffer are those that have to pay for the product.

    It should really only allow them to hack the computers of those with I.P addresses that are suspicious, or have committed suspicious activity. For example, if the FBI looked at your I.P address then at the one of the Boston bomber, which one would they go far? Same here, if you're not pirating you really should have nothing to worry about but if you are then you have guilt still boiling up in the gallows of your heart.
