Any Which Way They Can
JWilly, those are some pretty hairy scenarios you raise. Unfortunately, you're probably not far off the mark. I would not be surprised at all to see that's how this whole thing pans out. Perhaps the only reason Brilliant revealed their little trojan was to gauge the reaction of the digerati and also wait for the political climate when Congress/Senate makes it perfectly legal for the RIAA & Hollywood to do whatever they want to consumers, including planting trojans on home pcs and exploiting it to their advantage. In effect, rounding up anyone who has ever downloaded & installed a P2P for arrest & prosecution by the copyright police. The RIAA has certainly been busy little bees and a better name was never penned for their lapdog to do commit the deed(s).
Can any of you seriously say the Bill of Rights could get through Congress today? It wouldn't even get out of committee. -F. Lee Bailey
