    but he was just using the same tactics RIAA uses?!?! And they don’t get in trouble?!?1

    Power without control just begs to be abused. I would like to see people learning from this experience, yet I fear nothing will change, e.g. at the ACTA negotiations, where every attempt of control is fought with intransparency.

    I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, some state DA needs to harden the f*ck up and file extortion charges against the RIAA, since they’re doing exactly what this guy was doing.

    Heh! I’m currently a UGA student. Glad they nabbed the guy before he could fleece anyone else. And yes, it would be great if this cast were to cast more light on the RIAA’s own strong-arm tactics.

    Trying to extort money from college students? He should be fired for stupidity even if the other charge doesn’t stick. Talk about barking up the wrong trees.

    So it’s ok for the RIAA to blackmail people, threatening with jail time if they don’t pay up, but it’s not ok for one of their staff to take a cut by shielding them?
