“How Does This Benefit You Again?”

It’s a new year yet the RIAA is still on that bullshit. But this time they’re trying to bring Comcast & AT&T along for the ride.

To bring you up to speed: The RIAA’s stopped lawsuits on file sharing, instead choosing to only continue monitoring and alerting ISP’s of suspicious activity.  The ISP’s will then threaten to suspend or terminate the service of the individual

This makes no sense.

Neither Comcast or AT&T have any apparent ties to the RIAA.  They don’t rely on them for any of their content and they have no monetary ties.  They even use their download speeds in their sales pitch for the internet (what else would users be downloading?).  Why are you stepping into the battle zone?  Just take your $30 – $40 monthly and be happy. There’s no need for you to play watchdog for the RIAA.  Are they helping you find people who don’t pay for cable?  I didn’t think so.

I’m so glad I didn’t switch to AT&T this summer when they came to my door.  I was ready to sign my ‘net away until they told me I’d have to be without it for two weeks before they could install everything.  Since I have a PhD in common sense, I told them to take a hike and didn’t look back.

Hopefully they’ll come to their senses before they put pen to contract on this.
