'ISPs don't work for the RIAA'
EFF on recently leaked RIAA letter to ISPs
The EFF chimes in
on the leaked RIAA letter
that earlier this week exposed the industry's new effort to avoid the legal process in their campaign against p2p file traders. "EFF and others have long warned that copyright claims could become an altar on which personal privacy is sacrificed. Now the RIAA wants your ISP to voluntarily wield the knife, and there's no telling what else the RIAA might ask for once this cut has been made,"
says the EFF's Cindy Cohen. "The last time we checked, ISPs don't work for the RIAA, so until the major record labels come to their collective senses, ISPs shouldn't be handmaidens in their misguided lawsuit campaign."
