Just got an email from the RIAA about What.cd:

Dear registered user of the site What.cd,

We have recently been investigating the activities of the users of the
site what.cd and we have found that this site exists for the
sole purpose of music piracy.

Pirating music is a criminal offence and we believe it should be obvious
to you that the results outweigh the benefits - hard working artists
won't be rewarded for their work and will stop producing music,
ultimately leading to a severely reduced selection of music both in the
shops and for download.

The RIAA had hoped that the disabling by the police of the large illegal
music site, Oink.cd, would stop a lot of people from engaging in piracy,
as they don't want to be seen as criminals. However, this appears to
not be the case, as two large new sites have sprung up in its place.

This email is the final warning to all of you who were members of
Oink.cd and are current members of What.cd. If we find you to be
committing any more criminal acts of piracy then we will have to press
charges against you, as representatives of the major record companies of
America.

Yours Faithfully,

The RIAA

Anything like this happen to any of you?

The RIAA wouldn't warn you. If it was really them you'd be in a courtroom by now. They don't want justice, they just want cash.

It's a fake. I saw a news article on it, and it was just some punk-ass 14 year old kid.

Don't worry.


I believe that, since the writer didn't sound too professional.

Yes! An excuse to bash the RIAA!!!

The RIAA is the dumbest organization of fatass record execs that ever disgraced this Earth.

That said, yeah, dumb kid...

Users of OiNK-replacement What.cd, are receiving emails from what appears to be the RIAA. In it are threats that users must either stop their ‘criminal acts of piracy’ or have charges pressed against them. But is it the RIAA? Rival Waffles.fm? No, it’s a 14 yr old script kiddie out for revenge, says What.cd

Update: It appears someone claiming to be ‘biscuit’ offered the database for sale and even threatened to send it to the RIAA. After deciding that he should keep it - for later ‘blackmail’ purposes he hopefully considered this link and realized it’s not worth it, deleted the database and forgot all about it.

Update: biscuit wrote that he’s not responsible for the hacking and claims that the bash log is doctored.

Doesn't sound as professional as you'd expect from a bunch of bureacratic asses like the RIAA. My friend sent me one once. I was seriously scared out of my wits, said I'd have to pay something like $10,000 for each song. Then I clicked on a link to calculate how much I'd have to pay, and it turned out to be a joke site.
