Gene Simmons Fires Back At Hackers
0
Kiss star Gene Simmons has reacted to hacker attacks on his websites by threatening those responsible with FBI action, jail and homosexual rape. Simmons recently made headlines at a TV industry conference by saying the record industry had been too soft on those engaged in illegal downloading, stating that his position was: Make sure there are no incursions. Sue everybody. Be litigious. Take their homes, their cars. Don't let anybody cross that line. Members of an online community known as the Bureaucracy responded by launching a denial-of-service attack on GeneSimmons.com and SimmonsRecords.com a method whereby a site's servers are sent so many requests for web pages that they can't cope, which results in the site becoming unavailable. Although most people couldn't see his message, Simmons reacted with a threat-laced statement: Our legal team and the FBI have been on the case and we have found a few, shall we say, adventurous' young people, who feel they are above the law. And, as stated in my recent speech, we will sue their pants off. First they will be punished. Second, they might find their little butts in jail, right next to someone who's been there for years and is looking for a new girlfriend. We will soon be printing their names and pictures. We will find you. You cannot hide. However, he later updated the page to say: We've been told by government people to take down our previous post, so they can do what they do best: find out who you are and where you are. Stay tuned. The Bureaucracy points out that Simmons' statements underline the reason why they're attacking him, saying his viewpoint matches that of infamous UK legal firm ACS:Law, who attempt to make money by threatening people with court action for illegal downloading despite having very little evidence which would stand up to analysis. One member of the outfit says: If they could find us we wouldn't be able to get away with it so often. Mr Simmons is wrong and you can tell by the way he talks about the internet in his recent speech that he doesn't really know how any of it works. Mr Simmons also appears to believe that all filesharing is illegal, which is also wrong. We're not surprised he's resorted to bullying threats, but it won't work. Mr Simmons represents an old world view many more important people than him have tried and failed to silence the voice of the people. Thanks for the report to RockRadio.

    I'm not taking sides here, and I think what Gene is doing is out-of-hand. but Gene definetly does know what it's liek to be strapped for cash. In 74-76 KISS survived on other peoples clothes and hotdogs. they had to get girls to get them to take them hoem and raid their fridges.

    Can we form a class action lawsuit against him from threatening us? That would be funny.
    TheIceCreamMan
    Can we just all agree that Gene Simmons is the biggest douche in the universe and move on? He has no power if you ignore him.

    You know, I really feel bad for the guy. I mean, he needs money doesn't he? Obviously his millions aren't enough, so you know what, he can have my house, I really don't need it anyway! What a baby.

    So Gene is trying to strike the entire file sharing community with Jewish Lightning is he? What a ****ing *****. Has the entire world and still wants more. Im sad to say I am a kiss fan

    So Gene is trying to strike the entire file sharing community with Jewish Lightning is he? What a ****ing PIECE OF SHIT. Threatening everyone like that. Real cute. Move to Israel and stay there *****. Enjoy the bombs.

    I buy CD's and then upload them onto my iTunes, so I'm not doing anything that I know to be illegal. That being said, even as an outsider this seems like cruel and unusual punishment-the extent to which people have been punished for this, and what Gene is saying will happen to those that have downloaded illegally. How about you have them pay for what songs they took from you, and you go swim in your pool of cash outside your mansion. You know who should be thrown in jail to be raped and have their cars and houses taken away? People who cheat on their wives and release sex tapes of the affair.

    Gene Simmons: and if i ever catch any of you twerps crashing my site again, CONSEQUENCES WILL NEVER BE THE SAME!!!!!

    Irrelevance personified. He never says a goddamn thing about music as anything other than property, so everyone who actually cares about it should stop listening to the bastard. More to the point, who are these people downloading his music? The idea of somebody still listening to KISS is laughable.

    gene must be gay with a comment like that... or at least know some willing queers to do his homo rape job
    Galvatron
    The talentless goof has made hundreds of millions of dollars writing piss poor tunes,he should be thankful there are still idiots out there that still want to listen to his music.

    If I were the FBI agent contacted by his people (cause he probably can't operate a phone) I would have laughed so hard someone would've had to bring me an oxygen tank. What a ****ing buffoon. I will never again support Kiss in anything.

    Im sorry Gene Simmons for downloading music so you cant get even more richer from your countless tours, purchased music and from ur show, still getting paid from reruns. sorry i costed you 15 dollars that couldve went to your new space station.

    Let's try to make sense of Gene's logic: Downloading a $15 CD = Your home Downloading a $1.00 song = Your Car

    i dont blame him for getting pissed, he was just trying to scare off people who steal his music. and of course not all filesharing is illegal, but when you take into account how popular kiss is, it could easily add up to losing quite a lot of money he rightfully deserved. im sure every one commenting on this would also be pretty pissed if anyone stole any amount of money that they rightfully deserved. He has every right to be pissed, its just he doesnt understand the concepts of internet filesharing and whatnot. If you see his personal life, hes a very traditional man, but that doesnt make him a douche. And the people who are cussing him out and calling him greedy need to also look into his personal life and see the many charities hes contributed to and the fact that hes built his life and success up from the bottom, he came from a poor immigrant family.

    It's funny because a few years ago Lars Ulrich seemed to be heading down the same path Gene Simmons seems hell bent on traversing. He was a multi-millionaire who never has to work another day in his life and yet there he was whining about a bunch of kids filesharing. Then something amazing happened: Metallica understood the digital revolution and wound up jumping on board. When I went to see them last year I was able to buy a licensed bootleg of my show (320kb!) that was waiting for me in my inbox by the time I got home along with a PDF booklet that made it seem like an official album release. I NEVER would have imagined Metallica doing something like that but they've adjusted (remember how many different packs they offered for Death Magnetic?) Now, when people like Gene Simmons come out and bastardize file-sharing it just shows how out of touch he is with the current state of music; he just seems like an old man yelling from his porch at the kids to get off his lawn lol

    Gene Simmons still stuck in the past, nothing new there. Of course Gene Simmons doesn't think there's anything wrong with the sexual abuse epidemic in American prisons. Of course file-sharers and people angry about his ignorant comments deserve to be raped. Gene Simmons has done no wrong in his life. Don't worry about me pirating your music, Gene, it's not worth the hard drive space.
