RIAA IMs: We're Watching You
from the scare-tactics dept
The record labels and the RIAA are taking one more step towards pissing off their customers. Starting today they’ve been sending millions of instant messaging messages via file sharing services telling users that they’re being watched, and that the RIAA knows they’re sharing files illegally. The RIAA calls it an “educational effort”, though it seems more like “threatening your customers” to me.
