Wait, how can they tell?

A kid took a fetal pig during pig dissection, put a napkin on it as a cape, wrote "super pig" on it, then threw it out the window onto the greenhouse below, yelling "super pig, blast off!". He failed the pig lab

...dude. Not cool.

Next time I go though customs, I'm gonna fill my iPod with legal pirate metal. What then, bitches?

How can they tell directly from your iPod if it has album artwork and is in another format other than mp3?

I highly doubt they can tell the difference of pirate/legal music, and I don't think this law will pass.


It already did!

They couldn't tell. Unless their going to hook your iPod up to a computer and check, and then still then they still would have a hard time. What a waste of tax money & time.

Please government, invade my privacy even more. Hell, just cut to the chase and install a camera in my room, 1984-style.

EDIT: From the way the article made it sound, the only way the could really "tell" is if you have thousands of songs, which in that case they will assume that the only way you could afford such massive amounts of music is through piracy, since they have already taken most of your money anyway. Total bullshit. There is no way this will pass.
I simply cannot take this god-awful place anymore. Goodbye to all the good people here. The rest can fuck off.

That's fucking retarded. What about if I wiped my iPod before going to the airport, put my ripped CDs on it, and backed up my music on an external HD? Then what?

omfg that's a disgrace and imo a gross invasion of privacy. How the hell can they tell whether they're legally or illegally downloaded anyways? iPod files are all converted into the same thing anyway, it's ****ing stupid.

Anything by Buckethead is Pirate Metal. Because Buckethead is a pirate. Duh.

Conversely, you could load up your iPod with NIN songs. They'd be like 'those are illegally pirated songs' and you would be like 'dude, he doesn't care, he probably pirates more than I do.'

How has no one noticed that this proposed law or whatever is in Australia, NOT the United States? The friggin website is news.com.au.

I'm going to Europe from America in a couple of weeks and I have a lot of downloaded music on my mp3 player. Do you guys think it would it be safe to take it with me?

I expect a lot of stupid answers, but at least one serious answer would help

Yes, for the moment, these laws haven't become really effective yet, but it won't be safe for that long.

I'm probably wrong but at least here in the U.S. when cases arrive of pirating music, the cases are brought against those who are sharing the files and giving out the music. They really can't tell on an mp3 player at least to my knowledge where the music was originally taken from. My guess is this is a scare tactic.

That's what it sounds like. I can't see this being enforced and if it was how would they go upon doing this?
#37
even if they do catch you, what are they gonna do? when you go back home you will have all your music still on your computer.

I call bs on that article. They wouldn't be able to tell.
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.
