Ok... let me get this straight. copyright.net
has turned loose a tapeworm, called CopyrightAgent, that crawls around on your computer without your permission
, looking for copyrighted MP3 files. If it find them, it reports back your IP address, and they have Napster block you, if you're a Napster user. Otherwise, they contact your ISP, and have *them* block you under the DMCA.
And the first I
heard about this was a Knight-Ridder wire story in my local paper
?? Why the hell hasn't the Internet reacted by burning these people's offices (or uplink :-) to the ground?
