Post your credit card number, too?
Authored by: JimAkin on Jan 11, '06 09:03:36AM

People who have access to your playlist at this site (i.e. basically everyone) don't also have your name, address, phone number and credit card information, the way Apple does. Nor could they be subpoenaed to provide that personal information.

Call it paranoia if you like, but when music publishers are going after developers of song-lyric shareware for iTunes, I don't think it's much of a stretch to think there are plenty of lawyers who'd love to comb thousands of song-library records for evidence (and "evidence") of unauthorized use.

And before you assume all who avoid pirated music would be safe in such a scenario, ask someone who's "passed" an IRS audit how well virtuous behavior shielded them from hassle and expense.
