How will you prove you are innocent? You shouldn't need to unless you are
copying music for non commerical purposes. The Audio Home Recording Act
makes users who copy music for non commerical purposes immune to lawsuits.
Regardless of the fact the RIAA has brought about lawsuits, the AHRA
protects you. So, you shouldn't have to prove you are innocent of a crime
... because there has been no commission.

Of course, the scenario would be different with MPAA...
