Researching DRM litigation can be scary

Looking into the story from a few days back about eDonkey's $30m settlement and subsequent shutdown, I was directed (by the link at the bottom of the page) to eDonkey's website, at which time my IP address was apparently logged, in apparent suspicion of my not-yet-realized breach of international copyright law. I can only assume that other innocent Yahoo! news readers and university scholars are now on the RIAA watchlist of suspected pirates and IP traffickers, as no crime has to be committed in order to receive this stern warning. Give it a try, it's a nice way to feel a little paranoia on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
