If the judge agrees that makes it wide open to use against everyone.

The RIAA is rapidly becoming the new KGB & Gestapo, if they give them an inch they will take a mile.

As an example Say some big wig in the industry like Jerry makes a big editorial on how bad the RIAA is for the recording industry, do you think for one second the next day they wouldn't be knocking on his door with a warrant for his computer & if he had any of his legally purchased CD's ripped to his hard drive that they would drag him to court because some judge made it possible by finding in thier favor on this case?
No judge is going to find in their favor on that. It would go against previous rulings.

I believe the RIAA needs to quit suing and get the FBI involved and make it criminal. Send them to jail and fine them. That will get the attention of people.

Piracy is wrong.

I agree that piracy is wrong, but there is no telling what a judge might do!

Well they aren't asking for the judge to find it illegal to rip music. They're asking him to find in their financial favor against a guy ripping and allowing people to download his music.

OK the way I'm reading this is they are also trying to pile on a charge that says ripping your legally purchased CD's is illegal, if the judge rules in the RIAA's favor on that then it means they can go after anyone for that because they have set a legal precedent.
So yes they are trying to get the judge to say it's illegal to rip music.

I won't quote you because I don't use certain types of language, but I agree with the spirit of your post. I do not want to get up and put a cd in my player everytime I want to hear something. I don't rip to mp3 either - I rip to .wav and other lossless formats.

This is a civil case.
