It may please

anyone who has lost income as a result of copyright theft, but it certinly doesn't please me.

What's happening is that one of the players in the game (if you can call it that) has just raised the stakes, and I have no doubt that in America there will be some people who will wake up one morning soon to find they have a court appearance coming up.
What we all know however, is that this isn't going to solve the problem - or even begin to solve it. The file-sharing community will respond by modifying their procedures, and so the dance of death will go on.
The music industry has to find a way of addressing this issue that doesn't involve litigation. You can't run an industry in a law court, and the sooner the recording companies and musicians realise that fact the better for everyone.
