Don't believe the Hype...

This is interesting... Apparently they've won the war. We here at the Realm have not seen any changes in the usual sources... That leads me to believe this is propaganda... And really weak propaganda at that ... They are trying to convince people way more technologically savvy than themselves that file sharing has been curtailed... Nice try chumps!

From Macworld UK...

US record label trade body the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) believes it has "contained" music file-sharing.

RIAA CEO Mitch Bainwol told USA Today: "The problem has not been eliminated, but we believe digital downloads have emerged into a growing, thriving business, and file-trading is flat."

File-sharing activity continues with up to 10 million file-sharers using peer-to-peer services at any time during May 2006.

Legitimate digital music services have also seen growth. They now account for as much as 7 per cent of music industry sales, according to the IFPI.

The RIAA has sued just over 18,000 individuals for sharing songs online, with 4,500 settling for about $4,000 per case.

UFOs... blurry... proof? sure.

Seems to be an alien kind of day... Obviously this post should be taken with a grain of salt... Especially because these pictures come from UFOdigest (Link). We can only imagine the slant they take on UFOs. Also, the pictures of grainy, something I am suprised stil happens with all the quality cameras out there. Buut, for whatever it's worth, some UFO pictures and a retired Lt. Col. who took them...

Convinced? I think so... This guy is too...

Let me add that this is an oddly written story... It's litterally written like a short story, not an article about UFOs...

Why haven't the networks picked up this story?
