In all seriousness - I'm surprised more people haven't follow their lead.  *I've* been thinking about doing it myself, but I'm guessing I wouldn't have the legal clout to get anything going.  Basically, I'd record me singing 12 songs and put it on a 'CD'.  I'd pay to have 10 copies made and make a legit website for my new music label.

Then, 'someone' would leak it to the internet.  It might even be mislabeled....who knows.  The torrents might be marked as 'fake' after enough downloads, but whatever.  I don't need a lot.  Naturally 'someone' would seed them log the IPs of everyone who illegally downloads my CD.  I'd also regularly try to download it from torrent sites and log the IP of everyone sharing it.

I'd trace back the IPs - ignoring all the ones that aren't from a middle/middle-middle class neighborhood in the United States.  I'd be able to determine the ISP - so I'd just need a lawyer to send in a demand for their access logs or something, however the RIAA does it - to get back to specific ISP customers....then I sue them.  I'd offer them the option to settle out of court for a few grand.
