“I poisoned P2P networks for the RIAA” , a whistleblower from the IFPI (the global version of the RIAA) has said. Someone else actually claimed this a few days ago but it was admitted to be a hoax. Now, a fellow by the name of Matt Warne comes forward with a new claim.
While I'm sure many MeFi'ers disagree about the ethics of music piracy (which it is, whether or not you think it should be okay) – I think we can all agree that two wrongs don't make a right, can we not? Can the RIAA be sued for this, or will it be an invincible body, impervious to injury just like a certain other huge body that has problems getting hacked all the time, and simply has to repeatedly settle in court rather than admitting true wrongdoing?

everyone knew it was going on, everyone that used it, i hope.
