Wave Number Two Of RIAA Lawsuits Starts With An Invoice

from the pay-up-or-else-we-sue dept

As expected the RIAA is sending out extortion notes to the next 200 or so people they plan to sue.

This may also give them the chance to weed out anyone who may be slightly embarrassing for the RIAA to sue. It still remains to be seen what will happen should any of these cases actually go to court.

After all the negative publicity the RIAA has given themselves, its bound to backfire and eventually a savvy person who has been falsely accused is going to sue the hell out of the RIAA …
