Not deterred by bad press, it seems that the RIAA is content to continue their latest campaign against piracy.
Their latest group of lawsuits has included numerous institutes of higher education:
“The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), on behalf of the major record companies, this week sent a new wave of 407 pre-litigation settlement letters to 18 universities nationwide as part of an ongoing campaign against online music theft. The letters reflect evidence of significant abuse of campus computer networks for the purpose of copyright infringement.”
Strangely enough, it would seem that the University of Texas at Austin is the recipient of more settlement offers than any of the schools receiving settlement letters.
