Stop P2P with P2P

The RIAA is suing everybody it can. Spending millions just to make a point. But what’s the point when you can just make P2P useless. The idea behind P2P is that you can quickly search for a song and there you go. Most users click the first one that has the correct title and download it. If that one is crap they you select again. So what you need to do is seed more crap into P2P then the good. I’m not saying malicious files or anything like that. I’m saying you take the first 30 seconds of the song and keep that part. Then the rest of the song you fill with noise until the full song length is reached. If you do this with different rates, (128, 256, 384) and about 5 different file names, you will have many people downloading these bogus tracks. Let’s say to set this up you start with 100 computers in one office. They don’t have to be fast just have the bandwidth to serve the files. That would be 100 computers feeding 5 tracks for each artist into P2P. You could write a computer program that would create the files for you and place them in each computers shared folder. And all that would cost less then the RIAA suing one person. You could really make it very difficult to find anything using P2P. I know the good stuff will still be on there but you will have to go through so much crap that it wouldn’t be worth your time anymore. 5 tracks for each artist is nothing you can always use different formats and such. Worried about file space you can setup a central server that stores the files while all the other computers pull from that directory. Then setup multiple locations around the U.S. Before you know it you could cripple P2P. The 30 seconds of the actual song at the beginning will fool lots of people too. Many people just listen to the first few seconds to make sure it is of good quality. When they transfer it to their MP3 player they will get a shock.

The RIAA can pay me millions to set all this up instead of suing 12 year olds and grandmothers. Suing people just gives you a bad image. Seeding millions of partial songs into P2P would help stop piracy while keeping up a good image instead of a company out for money.
