Some of you may have noticed our penchant for following the RIAA while they pursued a ridiculous plan to sue as many people as they could in America to try and discourage downloading. At last count they had filed 35,000 law suits.
Finally, the evil behemoth has come to its senses. CBC is reporting that they have announced a new plan to stop suing people and instead will focus on working with ISPs to try and cut off internet access to those they think are downloading. Personally, I don’t think this plan has any chance of success. Providers are not going to want to monitor their customers or their usage more than they are.
But we shall wait and see.
