Whine whine whine

I think you are forgetting a few things.

First, music and video files are different than other files - they are actually worth stealing by everyone (not just identity thieves). You take your computer into Best Buy and the Geek Squad is going to steal all of your music and videos. If you think other computer repair places are any different, I have news for you...

Once someone has stolen them, they are "in the wild", and the RIAA could come after you if they get ahold of one. (Mental note: create an application that randomly adds the emails of the presidents of the RIAA member companies in place of your own.)

You DO know that this information was on your DRMed files beforehand, right?

But it is completely useless unless decrypted! Who is going to share protected files, and who in the RIAA is going to care if you do?

What's with using the word pirate as if that is a BAD thing, anyway? Yarrrrrrrr.... If you haven't shared all of your music with all of your friends, then you aren't doing your civic duty to bring down big music. They are the Honourable East India Company of the 21st century.
