The Recording Industry Association of America, with nothing better to do, is issuing an onslaught of “pre-litigation letters” demanding fines up to $5,000 from college students at 23 universities.
As M & C reports, the campaign is attempting to stifle file-sharing on college campuses across the country. Of the 405 letters sent out to various campuses, students at Boston University received the most with 50 letters. I say leave the kids in Boston alone; do you have any idea how much “clam chowdah” you can get for $5,000? Yum!
If you can believe it, over 18,000 people in the grand U.S. have been sued by music companies for allegedly downloading music illegally, subsequently violating copyright infringement. The industry has consistently blamed downloading for the decline of music sales, all the while never opting to maybe lower the prices.
