Things are moving fast now. Record industry just took over 50 % of torrents. They'll leave them run a little to investigate and find out who the major players are. I'm quite sure they've been doing that for a lot longer than people realize. I think they will bring down the entire network in the next year or so. They've got a plan and we don't. There game plan is confusion and division. They are going to divide us with all these fake sites and while we are running around from one fake site to another, they've effectively divided us. The reason why TPB was so strong is that it had 20 million users per month, that's unity. Tons and tons of files at our fingertips. Sure it might say thepiratebay, but in the future, will you be able to get on there and get anything you want? No. The gameplan for the RIAA isn't to make a dent into P2P but to bring it down completely any way necessary and if they have to tell you that P2P will go on, then that's what they'll do. They'll play around and tell you what you want to hear but when profit is the final goal, don't expect to be able to download what you want (not without a subscription fee). And even if you are willing to put up the $30/month subscription fee, do you think some of the more rare albums will be available? Lets say you like electronic metal, I can't remember what's it called....wumpscut, and the more rare stuff, I doubt it will be available. Am I just a pessimist? Are you guys willing to pay $20 - $40/month to download what you want? Isn't that what Usenet is already? I'm not willing to pay that. $20/month is probably what the average user in 1995 probably paid for music and entertainment anyway, so it's win situation for the music industry. If it wasn't for P2P, I would have never learned to program or read about forex. Or learn how to play poker. There is so many things that I've learned and read from P2P, it's insane. I've read so many e-books. It's a library. If P2P goes away and turns into a shopping mall, we will be in the dark. Invention will be finished. The little guy will be done. Rags to riches stories will become a thing of the past. All the patents will be owned by the corporations. They will tell you what they want you to know and nothing more. Is that what you want? You either love them or you're finished in society. That's how it will be. In the future, they'll blackball you if you cross them enough. Right now, if you screw over one bank, you can go to another one. What if there is only one bank or one ISP or what if one company owns nearly everything which is where we are headed. You screw over that company and you're finished in society, you might as well jump off a building.
