HEY! WASN'T THAT OUR IDEA?: Back before Napster collapsed, XRRF suggested that rather than wasting time and money on pursuing file sharing through the courts, the labels would have been better off merely creating a pile of junk files and swamping the services with them. Guess what? The RIAA have just twigged that it would be a great idea to create a load of junk files, and then swamp Kazaza and so on with them. Maybe a bit late now - fileswapping has become an established passtime, and so the labels have missed their chance to strangle the hobby at birth - but it's got to be better than their threat to start suing kids for copying the Eminem album amongst themselves.
We call it spoofing - but how can you tell a fake disappointing Gomez track from the real thing?
