Cuban Says RIAA Damages Should be $5 Per Month

ankit Re:Upload, not download (693 comments)

True, RIAA/MPAA are after people who are sharing the music/movies. But if they are fine everyone who is downloading movies/music $5 per month, that leaves no reason to fine the people uploading music.

It would be interesting if there was a small tax per month charged by an ISP that would legalize all "illegal" music downloads. Ofcourse, this assumes you delete the music as soon as you stop paying this tax, and never give it to anyone else who isnt paying this tax.

Command line slashdot journal entry

ankit ankit writes  |  more than 10 years ago

This entry is posted on slashdot by using a simple perl script that reads a text file and submits it to the slashdot journal. The final intention is to integrate this with movabletype content management system so that a blog entry can be copied to the slashdot journal. I still need to work on the movabletype plugin, but the script seems to work fine.
