RIAA flees

The RIAA has announced that it’s not going to sue music downloaders, although it’s holding open the possibility of suing the most egregious offenders.

I like to think it took one look at Charlie Nesson’s case and fled with its short tail between its legs.

This is good news not only for those who have felt the full, brutal force of the RIAA’s whim-driven prosecutions, but because it helps the clear the ground for a longer, more considered redressing of the balance of rights and values.

  1. I’m disturbed by the idea that unnamed ISPs can, after 3 complaints, cut off someone’s access to the net though. That presumes that the RIAA has legitimate complaints and the process doesn’t seem to have any way to let people accused of file sharing appeal.
