News articles are surfacing that say the RIAA after years of prosecuting or attempting to prosecute individuals for illegal downloads and attracting enormous amounts of flack for the manner in which they’ve persued the strategy, with numerous cases being rejected because the data is suspect or the way that the RIAA have tried to persue the cases.

The RIAA are now taking the approach that they will ask the ISPs to cut off the connections of people who share or download coyrighted material after several warnings have been issued. The problem with this, as we have already seen in the UK, that some of the warnings are not valid, and the ISPs are unlikely to fight back too much.

An article on this can befound on the Wall Street Journal here.
