Swap, Burn—and Die?


The RIAA clearly wants to intimidate file-traders with the announcement that the head of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms will soon head the record industry's anti-piracy effort. Bradley A. Buckles is a 30-year ATF vet and has been director since 1999.

  1. Great. Now you’re considered to have a file sharing program if you have just the DLLs that could be used for a file sharing program.

  2. I think that’s a great idea, given the bang up job the ATF did at Waco and Ruby Ridge. Why sue them when you can just shoot their wife and kids? This isn’t about RIAA member profits, it’s about the industry controlling consumption. Learn from the war on drugs…if you do not fill a demand, you will suffer and you have no one to blame but your greedy, shortsighted self and your faggoty music industry ponytail.
