WHO'S UPLOADING RUBBISH?: The Register is reporting an upswing in rubbish files swapping about on KaZaA, perhaps an early sign of the RIAA trying to discredit the system by putting up garbage files under proper record titles? (This also throws up the possibility that, to keep itself undercover and covert, the RIAA would have to try and find out who it is from its own ISP). The Register points out that no specific legal right to hack systems has yet been granted to the RIAA; which is true, but then listing a soundfile on the system as 'True Blue' by Madonna when it's actually a load of old noise isn't actually illegal anyway. In fact, it's more legal than listing the proper song, isn't it?
