This is such bullshit. blogger.com will always claim that since they are not actually hosting the files, all they can (or will) do is delete links.
What about the A-holes at Z-Share, Share-Bee, and their ilk who actually have the pirated material on their servers? It seems that if the record industry is willing to file suit against individuals who share files via Napster-style software, they should be willing to go after the huge server farms themselves. Or has this been tried unsuccessfully in the past? Or are the servers all offshore, in a country that doesn't care?
I spent some time following links from blog to blog; you can download new movies, new software, etc., all of it copyrighted. As soon as something hits a digital medium, it can be ripped and put up for the world to see. I gotta agree with you, ffcal, it looks like the horse has left the barn; I don't see how this trend can ever be stopped.
