Isn't it ironic... don't you think?

— 3:48 AM on July 30, 2002 was hit with a denial-of-service attack over the weekend, but at least one RIAA rep found a silver lining:

"Don't they have something better to do during the summer than hack our site?" asked the RIAA representative, who asked not to be identified. "Perhaps it at least took 10 minutes away from stealing music."
It would seem that the RIAA's attackers were not without a sense of irony. As you may recall, the RIAA recently endorsed a ludicrous bill that would give copyright holders the right to launch similar attacks against those infringing on their copyrights.

This raises the question: doesn't the RIAA have something better to do than hack some kid sharing an Alanis Morissette song over a P2P network?
