Record labels work to stem piracy

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Some of the world`s largest record labels are quietly financing the creation of programs by small software firms that, if deployed, would sabotage the computers and Internet connections of people who download pirated music, according to a newspaper report.

Would this be legal if they tried it??.

Identify = OK

Sabotage = Not OK and almost certainly illegal.

click here for the transcript, looks fairly sharp practice to me, expect lawsuits in the US if they try it. Corporate denial of service attacks and trojans ? Yeeeeuk.

oh dear! That's gotta be illegal, and as Belatucadrus point's out if they value the data on their networks and websites they should leave well alone!
