Seems the record companies are at it again, suing ISP’s for providing access to a Chinese website. This is a somewhat alarming case because of the trend it would start. The site is in China, clearly not within the jurisdiction of the RIAA and the US Government that works for them. So they’re suing American ISP’s for not blocking their customer’s access to the site. Hmm what’s next, are US ISP’s going to be forced to block access to overseas internet radio broadcasts because they aren’t paying the CARP royalties? Is the internet destined to become a bunch of national networks, closed off from each other because of differences of national laws? That would truly suck.
