RIAA Sues Again… As Promised
from the how-many-12-year-olds-this-time? dept
Realizing they’d lost a little momentum after the Verizon decision and noticing that file sharing is on the rise again, the RIAA still thinks that it can win the war by making a big publicity splash and suing people. The latest, is that they’ve filed 532 new lawsuits against people accused of offering music for download through file sharing networks. Because of the Verizon decision, these lawsuits are all filed against “John Doe” defendants, and they will now try to get legal subpoenas from ISPs to find out who these people are. Once again, this is more of a publicity campaign than a legal campaign, so it will be interesting to see if more stories of “falsely accused” people show up again.
