If it goes for mp3 files, why not compress your music in winrar or even kbg archiver to make it compressed more than winrar?

Even if this was made to "combat piracy", what about all the fucking legitimate mp3s I have on my computer? And the ones I record? The ones I use for videos I create? All the CDs I spent time ripping onto my computer from CDs I bought?!

I seriously hope this is bullshit... or that I never get hit with it...
I didn't have a signature until now.

What does that have to do with anything?

The RIAA would never dream of doing this, the legal repercussions would be far too great.

Im guessing its the work of a 1337 haxxor.
