Music Industry Cries Foul Over Amazon Cloud Player

If the music industry had it there way it would be illegal to loan your MP3 player to someone else or your kid to listen to because they didn't pay for the music on it.
If I bought the music I should be able to do what I want with it as long as I am not using it to make money in some way.
The music industry needs to quit whining, get up to speed & figure out how to use technology to there advantage to make money.

It is inevitable they will be assimilated or die !!!!!
 
I'm waiting for the day when hard-drive manufacturers start doing the same thing! A disclaimer with every WD external drive that says they have the right to audit all information stored on your new drive! If you have more than 1Gig of porn, they will file a police report with your local department labeling you as a sexual offender. And the record companies will have full access to your drives to monitor for illegal music downloads. The IRS will also have full access to view any financial info (aka Excel Spreadsheets) to make sure you're not keeping a 2nd set of books for your business.

Also, all new drives will have the capability to "smell" whats going on in your home. If any smell of narcotics is present, law enforcement will be dispatched immediately to the location of your IP address.

Looks like the movie 1984 estimated things 30 years too early :icon_eek:

what incriminating info would a napster/torrentz/piratebay grabbed mp3 file have, when compared to one I made from a purchased album/cd/cassette?
