Music and movie piracy hunters go after privacy law

Leave it to the RIAA and the MPAA (You now, those
wonderful folks who sue and harass anyone and everyone who even so much
as looks at a computer that might have been used in piracy of music or
movies.) to decide that little things like privacy mean nothing when it
comes to them being able to find somebody else to harass

I’m not saying that piracy is ok, I’m saying that the RIAA and MPAA have
been overly heavy handed and need to have the slack jerked out of them.

and movie piracy hunters go after privacy law

The music and movie industries are lobbying state legislators for
permission to deceive when pursuing suspected music pirates.The
California Senate is considering a bill that would strengthen state
privacy laws by banning the use of false statements and other
misleading practices to get personal information. Known as pretexting,
the tactic created a firestorm of criticism when Hewlett-Packard Co.
detectives used it last year to obtain phone records of board members,
journalists and critics.

But the Recording Industry Association of America, or RIAA, and
Motion Picture Association of America, or MPAA, say they sometimes
need to use subterfuge as they pursue bootleggers in flea markets and
on the Internet.

Global Futures

One way to invest today is by trading global
futures and foreign currency. While this sounds like the kind of
thing that takes having a boatload of cash to throw around on the
market, but apparently it isn’t. It’s possible to can get into these
financial markets starting out with as little as $250.

What you have to do is find a trading company or brokerage firm that does
business in these markets and begin to trade. is one
choice. They can explain the many possibilities available to the small
(or large) investor. There are tools on their website that can help you
track trends, make purchases, sell off currency and futures you own.

One thing I read about was a "Simulated Trading Account", this sounds to
me like a great way to try your hand without actually risking real
money. It’s a good idea to be able to do something like this before
jumping in and putting real money on the line.

And remember, There is risk of loss trading Futures, options and forex

Briefly Reviewing

When I first saw the first thing I thought
was that they might just be able to win some kind of award for having a
really long domain name that can actually be remembered.

The site is, as you can guess from the domain name, centered on
Mortgages and Mortgage
Refinancing. They’ve managed to pack quite a bit onto just the index
page without making it so busy that you get lost in it. They also avoid
one of my favorite things to not like about a web page by keeping text
colors decently contrasted from the backgrounds so that everything is
easy to read.

There’s a bunch of financial news type articles and at the bottom of the
page is a huge number of links for so it’s easier to find pages specific
to California
Mortgages, Florida
Mortgages or any other state as well as dozens of cities all over
the US.
