I thought of this after seeing that "free music" thread.

Considering that many of us may or may not have allegedly downloaded/copied music and movies from owned or unowned sources, and that some of us may or may not have upwards of over 20-50 GB worth of mp3s, mpegs, avis etc., would you consider working for the RIAA/MPAA and pursue the digital pirate and burglar of IP who is typically a poor college student?

Even better, I'd do it if I got paid in free music downloads.

$1.5 million per year, in the form of a company check.

The catch:  They retain all copyrights to the check, so you can never cash it.

I would work for the RIAA only to destroy it from within or perhaps to open their eyes to an alternative business strategy.
