I guess deciding that years of bad press from suing people from innocent mothers to transplant patients to dead grandmas , RIAA has decided to give up filing suits against individual users. Instead, RIAA will work with ISPs to cut off access to those deemed to be violaters. The program works like this. RIAA notifies ISP of an alleged infringer. ISP looks up the infringer and sends a notice to stop illegal filesharing. RIAA will reserve the right to prosecute those offenders who continue to file share illegally after notices. It's a step in the right direction.
