Dun think it will affect jpop. RIAA couldn't care less about jpop. Why? cos it's out of their authority. As for RIAJ, they don't either have the authority to sue ppl outside Japan. Anyways the japanese record companies are making enough money by sellin HEAVILY overpriced cds and goods related to music!!! Nearly 30$ per cd, that's robbery!


Is that really the case? Copyright protection is international. They ought to be able to go after anyone in most any developed nation out there.

Too late Pemu, the gov already closed down most if not all pirated stuff 'hot spot' in Indo.

Actually, if you do not live outside America, you'd be alright. They are only targeting people living in the U.S.

Hehe! My bad. I mean Indonesia is known for its highly corrupted system, the system isn't fully functional. They have other major issues to resolve than closin down the hot spots. Correct me If I'm wrong. They must have been pressured by the Japanese authority.

If I had a choice between to visit the 2 region, hands down I'd choose scandinavia. Altho, never been to Finland, we went to iceland two years ago and it was awsome there. Plus, it seems everyone is so friendly there, we vowed to visit one of the scandinavia country asid from our jpnese trips.

Da most part is so strange Artist whose song is in pirate cd is definetly famous and if his/ her song download Lots lots by ppl get more famous...But Da record company gain little profit.. Mr Green


But I heard Da selling song online By Ipod is succesful...My opinion is the price of Cd is affordable by us why we buy pirate and spent alot of time D/l da song...Maybe they took too much profit from us Da customer..Specialy Japan song geez man Want to buy it legally but It'll cost me a fortune..

I'm glad they didn't do this crack down 5 or 6 month ago cuz back then my computer was filled with mp3 files constantly sharing though kazza. I would have been so broke if they got me.
