Tote That Barge, Lift That Bale - Life As An RIAA Lawyer [9:39 pm]

INDUCE/IICA may be delayed, but the RIAA keeps right on slogging: RIAA Fires New Round of Volleys (see also The Register’s RIAA hunts down more file-trading scum)

A recording-industry trade group said on Thursday it had filed lawsuits against 762 people it suspects of distributing its songs for free over internet “peer to peer” networks like Kazaa and eDonkey.

The Recording Industry Association of America has now sued roughly 5,400 people over the past year in an effort to discourage the online song copying that it believes has cut into CD sales.

Cory points to research that says the RIAA has a long row to hoe — and it’s just getting longer (The True Picture of Peer-To-Peer Filesharing; presentation).
