Thread: Riaa Says Small Downloaders Not Targeted

    RIAA Says Small Downloaders Not Targeted

    The Recording Industry Association of America has told Sen. Norm Coleman that it is not going after small violators in its campaign against online music swappers.
    The RIAA's written assurance was made in response to questions Coleman sent to the group over its tactics, which he has labeled "excessive." Coleman, chairman of the Senate Governmental Affairs' Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, plans to hold hearings on the RIAA's campaign.

    "RIAA is in no way targeting 'de minimis' users," wrote Cary Sherman, the group's president, in a letter the subcommittee released Monday. "RIAA is gathering evidence and preparing lawsuits only against individual computer users who are illegally distributing a substantial amount of copyrighted music."

    But Sherman added that his group "does not condone any illegal copying and does not want anyone to think that even a little illegal activity is acceptable."

    What's come out in EFF's dissection of RIAA's released info about who/what they're suing, some people are being sued yet only 5 songs are listed as the reason...

    Gee, 5 MP3s is 'a lot' now?

    I don't live in America, so I'm not bothered by the RIAA, but I was wondering, what is there idea of "excessive". 100s, 1000s ?
