    And if you have legitimate use for kazaa, ie sharing your stuff, why would they
    find it necessary to cut you off?

    If you steal, you deserve to get cut off. If you don't, then
    you have nothing to worry about.

    Don't listen to "Richard". If there is ever any truth to what
    he says it is for the same reason a broken clock is correct twice a day.

  6. Baron Von Reeve Spilled my beer when they jumped on the table and
    I doubt that's really possible. You see, when you (TINY) sign up
    for an ISP, you agree to abide by their rules, not doing anything
    illegal/etc. Technically, MP3 swapping is illegal (Copyright vio).

    It's just been recently the ISPs have stopped looking the other
    way. Can't blame them because if they don't terminate an acct, then
    they're legally liable, I believe.

    They actually are liable if there is supervision involved based on a
    prior sentence. Several jurisdictions have had judgements rendered
    against them for new crimes committed.

    ISPs could be liable if, after notification, they continue to supply the
    connection used. It's easier to terminate the account than to try to
    block out the activity (if it's even possible).

    Easier, yeah, but it's not at all by the book, is it?

    Applying the logic above, continued service would only be an ISP liability
    if the RIAA (or whomever) first got a judgement against the user for
    copyright violation, and then discovered the user doing it again through the
    same ISP's network.

    True, and they *are* clear to cut you off for violating AUP.

    Point well made and taken. Thanks. :)

    I don't know if you have seen this:

    It does look like this initial RIAA salvo is a scare tactic.

    There's little doubt that the major media outlets are looking to make
    big money by pushing their media over broadband and a lot of this stuff
    now is just trying to get positioned for some years down the road. The
    napster, etc stuff was just the wakeup to the clueless media companies
    and they're trying to clamp down and get things settled before the real
    big money is at risk.

    That's the law in PA, as I understand it: "Pennsylvania's "Dram Shop
    Act" is a statute that imposes liability on drinking establishments for
    any injury that results from serving alcohol to visibly intoxicated

    And: "According to the Insurance Information Institute, forty-two
    states and the District of Columbia have laws that hold liquor servers
    liable for the damage a drunk driver causes." Safe%20Holiday%20Parties.doc

  15. I believe it has also been upheld way up here in the far and frozen
    North Woods.

    UseNet Rules #n:
    No firm info at the present time is available on just what the other UseNet
    Rules #n are. However, at a guess, they include:
    Rule #nonumber: There are no hard-and-fast Rules on UseNet, only Guidelines,
    which are more or less strictly enforced (and differ) from group to group;
    this is why it's generally wise to read any group for a bit before ever
    posting to it.
    Rule #0: *There* *is* *no* *C*b*l*. There *is*, however, a net-wide
    conspiracy designed solely to lead Dave Hayes (q.v.) to believe that there
    is a C*b*l.
    Corollary: *There* *are* *no* *pods*.
    Rule #9: It's *always* September, *somewhere* on the Net.
    Dave Fischer's Extension: 1993 was The Year September Never Ended [so far,
    there doesn't seem to be much evidence he's wrong...]
    Rule #17: Go not to UseNet for counsel, for they will say both `No' and
    `Yes' and `Try another newsgroup'.
    Rule #2 (John Gilmore): "The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes
    around it."
    Rule #108 (from the soc.motss FAQ): "What will happen to me if I read
    soc.motss?" "In general, nothing. (You may be informed or infuriated, of
    course; but that's a standard Usenet hazard.)"
    Rule #666: Old alt groups never die. They don't fade away nicely, either.
    Rule #7-B: There is no topic so thoroughly covered that noone will ever
    bring it up again.
    Rule #90120: Applying your standards to someone else's post *will* result
    in a flamewar.
    Rule #1: Spellling and grammer counts. So do grace, wit, and a sense of
    humor (the latter two are different), as well as a willingness to meet
    odd people, but these are lesser considerations.
    Rule #x^2: FAQs are asked frequently. Get used to them.
    Rule #29: no rational discourse can happen in a thread cross-posted to
    more than two newsgroups.
    rule #6 (Eddie Saxe): don't post to misc.test unless you understand the
    Rule #547 (Arne Adolfsen): When people know they're wrong they resort to ad
    Rule #37 (Faisal Nameer Jawdat): Read the thread from the beginning, or else.
    Rule #5 (Reimer's Reason): Nobody ever ignores what they should ignore on
    Rule $19.99 (Brad `Squid' Shapcott): The Internet *isn't* *free*. It just has
    an economy that makes no sense to capitalism.
    Rule #3 ("Why 3?" "Because we felt like it"): For every opinion there is at
    least one equally loud and opposing opinion; sometimes stated as:
    Rule #27 (Gary Lewandowski): "In cyberspace, *everyone* can hear you scream."
    And for completeness' sake:

    Rule #4: (Godwin's Rule) Any off-topic mention of Hitler or Nazis will cause
    the thread it is mentioned in to an irrelevant and off-topic end very soon;
    every thread on UseNet has a constantly-increasing probability to contain
    such a mention.
    Quirk's Exception: Intentional invocation of this so-called "Nazi Clause" is
    Case's Corollary: If the subject is Heinlein or homosexuality, the
    probability of a Hitler/Nazi comparison being made becomes equal to one.
