Despite numerous claims to being a friendlier company that works towards “solutions”, the RIAA is continuing its relentless assault on downloaders, particularly college students the past year. Now, they are asking for $3,000 each from 50 students at Ohio University. Barring the students actually paying the $3,000, the RIAA is threatening to sue each and every one of them, for up to $590,000 to the worst “offender”.
They certainly aren't winning any PR battles. For each song, the RIAA is claiming $750 in damages.
