Finally, a music organisation that has woken up!

Good to hear the CRIA released that report. Now I hope that report will give some influence here in the Commonwealth Realm on the other side of the Pacific, but on the other hand, the Australian Record Industry Association has done jack all regarding P2P! They're all words, but no action! LOL!

Actually, I was wrong. I forgot the Kazza lawsuit that was over here. But I've never seen ARIA take single-person lawsuits...yet.

No Opinion BY CRIA

The article cited is just poll data. The CRIA has not stated that illegal file sharing is okay.
