Let Freedom Ring

Today a Federal appeals court ruled that the RIAA can't force internet service providers to reveal the names of people using filesharing apps or swapping files on thier networks. This constitutes a huge blow to the RIAAs witch hunt for file sharers. Read a mirror of the AP story here.

It's good to know that the large ISPs will go to bat (and probably at great expense) for their users rather than just rolling over for unconstitutional subpoenas. Perhaps we will finally see a downward trend in CD prices to counteract file sharing. If CDs topped out at $10, it certainly wouldn't be worth it to me to find music on the internet.
