    RIAA cracks down on Internet2 file-swapping



    The Recording Industry Association of America filed suit Tuesday against students at 18 universities accused of operating file-swapping services on the supercharged Internet2 network. The suits are the first to focus on the next-generation research network operated by universities. The i2Hub file-swapping service has operated for a year on campuses that are connected to Internet2.

    Recording industry executives said i2Hub had become a serious problem over time as students believed they could not be observed trading files.

    "i2Hub has been seen as a safe haven, and what we wanted to do was puncture that misconception," said Cary Sherman, president of the RIAA. "This has been a subversion of the research purposes for which Internet2 was developed."

    I ignore all the ID tags. Too much time spent working and not enough fun.

    I spent years doing mine, I am thinking of buying some LP software to do all the vinyls I have also, get a lot of vinyl from boot markets, flea markets and charity shops, not turned any yet into wma or mp3, just wondering when ripped does it update the same way as a ripped cd/DvD?
