Those nauseating RIAA hypocrites were caught illegally downloading $US9 million of TV shows. Now they are giving the same pathetic excuse given to them by the people they accused of pirating songs: "someone was using our IP address."
Somebody please make these sanctimonious pretenders walk the plank.
Talking to CNET, RIAA said that "those partial IP addresses are similar to block addresses assigned to RIAA. However, those addresses are used by a third party vendor to serve up our public Web site. As I said earlier, they are not used by RIAA staff to access the Internet."
The fact is that the IP address are not "similar to block addresses assigned to RIAA." They are assigned to the RIAA, period. That said, who is the "third party vendor", RIAA? Who are the bad guys now? Not you, obviously. Everyone knows you are not the most obnoxious, useless, bloodsucking lazy phony bastard thieves in the planet. There has to be a third party, someone guiltier than thou.
And who the hell gives a third party the use of your organization's IPs?
But don't worry, we will give you the benefit of the doubt even if it's a bullshit excuse. The same benefit of the doubt that you gave to those who used the same pathetic reply, the people you sued into oblivion.
