RIAA Racketeers Recruit Quisling ISPs

Leaked letter shows RIAA pressuring ISPs, planning discounts for early settlements

The RIAA is asking for additional cooperation from ISPs in getting customers targeted by the RIAA’s file-sharing sting to cooperate, according to a letter recently leaked to P2P attorney Ray Beckerman. In it, the RIAA lays out its vision for how it would like ISPs to cooperate with its efforts to identify and sue those accused of sharing music over P2P networks. This includes communicating a standing offer of a $1,000 settlement discount should the subscriber settle before a lawsuit is filed against him or her. The letter also discloses plans for a settlement web site that will launch later this year.
