Music Industry Won't Sue, Will Take Your Internet Service Instead


Posted December 19, 2008 - By kijibe

Next time you feel your Internet service is slowing to a snail's pace, or just been cut off for no reason...you may want to ask yourself, "Have I been illegally uploading music online?"

If you answer yes, the Recording Industry Assoc. of America (RIAA) may be the factor.

Instead of going after individuals for sharing songs on peer-to-peer networks, the music industry is going to try something a little different.

The RIAA is going to switch up its anti-piracy approach from going after an individual to internet service providers (ISPs).

The trade group has come up with a preliminary agreement with major ISPs so that when someone is putting up music online to share with others, it will either send an email notification or alert the customer as the illegal uploading is happening, asking them to knock it off.

If you ignore that warning, you'll get several more warnings, even followed by a slower service from you provider. Or the ISP will just shank your line altogether.

Waddya think about that?
