Next up for the RIAA: Your Internet Service Provider

The RIAA is telling us they’re going to stop suing and get internet service providers to help them stop illegal file sharing. The RIAA says that it’s worked for the movie industry (sort of) and their talks with ISP’s have been going well.

Here’s what they’re not telling you: While a few ISP’s have said they’ll send warning notices to RIAA identified abusers, not one has yet agreed to actually cut anyone off. Shut off without due process leads to lawsuits. More importantly, ISP’s know that attacking customers is bad for business. Just look at how well punishing people has worked for the record business.
