"Fundamentalist" attacks like this will only be harmful to the cause of real IP reform.

Look at the way Greenpeace has changed over the last 30 years. They've learned that attacking people in an adversarial way only pushes people away from your cause.

When you break the law, or even just break the social "laws" of fair dealings, you undermine the fundamental social contract that you need to rely on in order to get your adversary to come around to your point of view.

And no, two wrongs don't make a right, just because the RIAA/MPAA act like thugs in the courts and treat consumers with disrespect doesn't mean that it's OK for you to do the same.

Just think how morally superior you feel when RIAA/MPAA do something underhanded, well attacks such as this make them feel just as smug about you.

P.S. when I say "you" I mean the Anonymous group, not you Bruce. :)

The RIAA will never learn.

Why are always fighting against instead of going with social trends!

Please check out my rant on why RIAA is like an old dog needing to be put down.
