RIAA Changing their tactics against music downloaders

court_gavelEvery once in a while, I’ll come across an article describing how the RIAA is sueing private individuals for sharing copyrighted music files on the Internet. From what I’ve read, the RIAA has never successfully won a suit in court. Instead, they usually settle out of court accepting a few thousand dollars from the defendant. Here’s an online article that describes a change in tactics for the RIAA: Instead of sueing individuals (which apparently is very costly), they are asking ISP (Internet Service Providers) to shutdown the Peer-to-Peer file transfer of music files. So if you get your music via these P2P networks, your days may be numbered!
