RIAA wants immunity to hack into your computer

The legislation would immunize groups such as the Motion Picture Association of America and the Recording Industry Association of America from all state and federal laws if they disable, block or otherwise impair a "publicly accessible peer-to-peer network."

Anyone whose computer was damaged in the process must receive the permission of the U.S. attorney general before filing a lawsuit, and a suit could be filed only if the actual monetary loss was more than $250.
Also being considered is legislation to allow RIAA and MPAA members to break into homes and businesses with sledgehammers to destroy computers, and audio and video cassette tapes.

Maybe they should coordinate this with TIPS snitching service dreamed up by the Johnny Reb's gang.

PS: This wayward woman will be sent to RIAA Reeducation Camp. From hamadryad's 'blargh'.
