RIAA Stops Suing Individuals, Works With ISPs Instead [File Sharing]

21 Dic/08

After nearly 35,000 lawsuits against alleged illegal file-sharers, the RIAA is halting legal action. Instead, the music industry says it will work with ISPs to shame and punish pirates.

That means that if someone is found to be offering up copyright-protected goods, the RIAA and its anti-piracy agents will pass the information on to that uploader’s internet service provider. Under most circumstances, there’s a warning letter/email, then a bandwidth cap, then removal, if the sharing continued.

The Wall Street Journal article notes that the RIAA won’t say which internet service providers have signed on with the record label conglomerate, but notes that as more of the big players seek to get in on the on-demand media business themselves, it’s likely they’ll be open to talks. [via]
