(Spoofing For Pirates sounds like a band name.)
The recording industry apparently has hired a company to create fake music files that have a snippet of the song or just static. This new practice, known as spoofing, is being done to frustrate music pirates into stopping their illicit song-swapping practices. This won’t work. If you are patient enough to download a song you like instead of paying for it, you are probably patient enough to download it two, three, or as many times as needed until you have it in your collection.

  1. One of the most stupid ideas the recording industry ever had. Why they don’t use the money they spend in that company to reduce the price of music CD? They don’t see that the real problem is in price?.

    Well that’s my opinion, piracy with MP3 will grow till the day original CDs cost less than the $22 that cost today. IMHO
