RIAA wants client-side monitoring service


Recommended Posts

As if an ISP filtering what content gets to you wasn't enough, Cary Sherman of the infamous RIAA says that the only way to really defeat piracy is via a client-side monitoring service, much like an anti-virus client, except more like spyware. He says that the current problem that ISPs are facing with server-side filtering is encrypted content, which can be read only by the server it comes from, and the client receiving it. So, his solution is to wait until the content is decrypted, after it reaches the client.





Just when you thing the RIAA couldn't be any dumber

Pfft. I personally love the Supreme Court of Canada's take on the Canadian side of this issue with the Canadian recording industry. The judge over-seeing the initial request compared copying a CD/DVD to being equal to using a photo-copier to copy a part of a book in a public library. Why make the means available to copy, if it's illegal to copy? Furthermore, he told the Canadian recording industry that he would not waste his time persuing the matter, as it would tie up the courts when many other, more important issues need to come first.
