The Tech: “RIAA Sends Thirty Pre-Liitgation Letters Over Alleged Music Piracy“:
Thirty individuals at MIT have been sent pre-litigation settlement letters after allegedly illegally downloading copyrighted music, according to a press release issued by the Recording Industry Association of America last month.
The letters are part of an RIAA strategy announced February 2007 that give students accused of piracy a chance to settle outside of court. The pre-litigation letters offer discounted settlements compared to settlements available after civil court proceedings begin, according to the press release.
