Senator Launches Inquiry Into RIAA's Piracy Crackdown

It appears that a few politicians are finally beginning to realize that the RIAA’s tactics go a bit too far. Senator Norm Coleman is now launching an “inquiry” into the RIAA’s practices for trying to track down those involved in file sharing. He wants more info on how they’re filing subpoenas and how they’re guaranteeing that innocent people aren’t be targeted. Everyone warned that the industry was facing a backlash. Hopefully this is the beginning of the real backlash that will lead the music industry down the road towards getting a clue.
