What’s The Download

What’s The Download is a new site dealing with copyrights and digital music. It’s causing quite a stir thanks to their TV spot during the Grammy’s last night. It argues the flip-side of Downhill Battle, for industry rights etc. But what they don’t say on their site, is that they are run by the RIAA Recording Acadamy, which is causing some concerns.
I think the scariest thing about this site is the claim that they’re scanning the computers of people who access the site. Are they looking for P2P applications? Be sure not to visit unless you have turned off any filesharing programs, because you never know what will happen when you give them your IP.
