Music Traders To Receive Cease-And-Desist Warnings

from the next-steps dept

No surprise here, but the RIAA has announced that they plan to send cease-and-desist letters to the names they received in the Verizon case, telling them to stop file sharing or face the legal consequences. I'd be surprised if any are still actively file trading (or doing so in a way that makes them likely to get caught) since Verizon let them know their names were being passed on to the RIAA - so they had to expect this.

    Time to Switch

    Recieve a electronic C&D?

    Time to find a new provider.

    Preferably one who uses an alternative NATing gateway that blocks access to commonly abused ports but keeps random highports open.
