UK Recording Industry Getting Ready To Get Into The Useless Lawsuit Business

from the that'll-help dept

UK lawyers rejoice! Having clearly learned absolutely nothing about what’s going on in the US concerning all the anti-file sharing lawsuits, the recording industry in the UK is getting ready to sue file sharers there as well. In the meantime, recent evidence suggests that more people than ever before are file sharing. It appears the recording industry’s plan is to try to force everyone they can find to just pay about $3,000 in extortion settlement money to offset their inability to change with the times or come up with a product people want.
