RIAA Demands a Whopping $756 per Song!

A Bronx Woman agreed to pay the Recording Industry Association of America $6,050 to settle allegiations she purloined 8 tracks on the file sharing network Kazaa.

That's $756.25 a song from artists DMX, Lenny Kravitz, Eagles, Sade, Ready For the World, Uncle Sam and Tamia.

The settlement came three weeks after the woman, Denise Barker, admitted liability and challenged the constitutionality of the Copyright Act, the law under which the RIAA sued Barker and thousands of others for copyright infringement. Among other things, Barker alleged the act's fines, up to $150,000 per track, were unconstitutionally excessive and against U.S. Supreme Court precedent.

The woman's attorney,Ray Beckerman, said that Barker decided to settle. "The client makes the decision. I would have loved to litigate this," he said. "I think we had good defenses."

The RIAA has sued more than 20,000 individuals for illegal file sharing. Most of the accused settle out of court for a few thousand dollars.

Barker will make 55 monthly payments of $110, ending in February 2013, according to the settlement agreement in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

Only one RIAA file sharing case has gone to trial, resulting in a $222,000 penalty, or $9,250 for each of the 24 purloined tracks.

Don't become one of them and suffer the penalty!

Many file sharing networks, and even non-free music download (mp3) sites are illegal, scams.

"Waste-of-Money" Digital Photography Tuitions


Did you know that a simple Google search will reveal a massive industry of Digital Photography "tuitions"...


...which contains courses, manuals, DVD's and 3 day classes etc. where you can EASILY spend $1000's or more to learn Photography.


The Photography tuition industry is in fact so big that sales revenue from it is in fact larger than the revenue from the sales of Digital Cameras itself! And you know what else...?


It is NOT in most "Photography Guru's" best financial interests to produce courses that show you how to quickly and easily master the basics of Digital Photography (eventhough that is EXACTLY what 99% of newbies want and need)...


...If they did they would most certainly "kill their own Golden Goose" because you wouldn't need to spend hundreds of dollars on the rest of their training DVD's.


Most Digital Photography training material leaves you feeling even more "overwhelmed" after you've been through it than before! This is a deliberate ploy, so that you'll order EVEN MORE training material.


So they are basically a complete WASTE OF MONEY!


And this is the "dirty little secret" they don't want you to know and why you won't find other courses like "Your Guide To Digital Photography!"

I want to congratulate you on your teaching methods.

He Made 800 Grand

Yes, I said 800.

It's real!

Yesterday, I told you this was going to be big, but I didn't even
know HOW big it would be. Get yourself over to
Treasure Hunt Marketing and see for yourself.

As usual, Nick has over-delivered!

Treasure Hunt Marketing is absolutely one of the best product of
the year!

Nick's going to show you not only how to make a big splash and a
big profit right from the get go...

... but he's going to show you how to keep making sales without
having to ditch your product and move on to the next one. Nick's
plan is truly unlike anything I've seen before.

He even shows tons of proof of how well his unique plan has
worked for others.

And it's finally available, so you can read the secret page
yourself by going to Treasure Hunt Marketing.

Keep in mind Nick isn't like some guys out there. He practices
what he preaches. Remember Forex Enterprise? That's Nick. He
made nearly 800 grand his first year with that one product,
and he continues to make money hand over fist with it.

The best part of Treasure Hunt Marketing is he shows you exactly
how he built his fortune. And makes it so darn easy to copy his
success.

He shows step by step, exactly how he...

--Went from nowhere to 7 figures in little more than a blink of
the eye... Then he helps you do it too!

--Not only launches products with wild success... but builds on
that success for even more profits!

--Follows a simple blueprint that can make him INSTANT money,
but then turns things up a notch... or 10 for the real,
longterm money.

And he shows you in simple language, exactly how you can do it too!

And that's what matters...

Some marketers will tell you how they did it (not all, but some),
but they never make it easy for you to do the same thing.

Nick is really giving up all the insider stuff.

See for yourself. The link is Treasure Hunt Marketing.

If I were you, I'd go there right now, because there are 2
discounts that just may go away before you get there.

1. He cut $100 off the price for the first 500 who sign up.

2. This is the coolest... Since it's called Treasure Hunt
Marketing, he put a real treasure hunt right in the page! An
additional $100 to you, only if you can find it.

I STILL haven't found it, but I'll keep looking. It's there
though, others report to have found it.

How would you feel if you missed out on what could be the
single greatest short term and long term money-making
opportunity you'll ever be offered?

I already know THM is probably going to be the single most
important investment I make this year. What about you?

But you can't get it if you don't get there! The link is
Treasure Hunt Marketing.

I spoke to Nick and even though "THM" has only been out less
than an hour, he's already talking about raising the price.
And that's not an arbitrary thing. The price will be raised
after 1,000 are sold. And if you know Nick, you know 1,000
will be sold quick.

So get in now, while the getting is good.

So... Get over to Treasure Hunt Marketing and keep an eagle
eye out for that treasure. (If you find it... let me know!)

To Your Certain Success...



Krister Laitinen

koobface - The Facebook Virus

Heard of the virus koobface yet? Perhaps you've even been affected!

Net-Worm.Win32.Koobface attacks Facebook and MySpace accounts. There four variants so far, and there may well be more to come.

The worm uses a pretty simple approach - a link to a 'video', and then, when the user tries to watch it, s/he gets a message saying they need to update their Flash Player. It's an approach we're seeing a lot at the moment; download the 'Flash Player' file and there's new malware on your machine.

Of course, this isn't the first malware for Facebook or MySpace. There has been earlier variants of this worm which attack MySpace, but not Facebook. The virus writers behind Koobface are clearly trying to maximize the number of victims - the more there are, the bigger the botnet is going to be.

The guys behind Koobface are also linked to the 'fake antivirus' programs XP Antivirus and Antivirus2009 which are actually spyware. Installers for these spyware programs have been detected which also contain the worm code. And Trojan-Downloader.Win32.Fraudload, which was being used to download XP Antivirus etc. is now being used to download the worm files.

The result is a double whammy: in addition to being infected by the worm and herded into a botnet, victim machines are also going to get hit by one of these nasty pieces of spyware.

So watch out!

There are a number of good antivirus program out there that can protect you. One highly aclaimed one is Kaspersky Internet Security 2009. It is well worth checking out.
