More Folks Agree To Pay RIAA's Extortion Rates
from the pay-up-or-else dept
The RIAA continues their PR (not legal) campaign against file sharing by announcing that 63 more people have agreed to settle with the RIAA and pay up for sharing music. On top of the 12-year-old girl, this makes a total of 64 people. 12 of those settlers weren’t even sued, but had simply found out that the RIAA had sent out a subpoena for their info. They don’t say how much the settlements were for, but other stories on the matter suggest that the RIAA comes in with a “take-it-or-see-you-in-court” offer of a few thousand dollars. Meanwhile, they’re also claiming that nearly 1,000 people have taken them up on their worthless “amnesty” offer, that says they really really promise to leave you alone if you really really promise to stop sharing music.
