While I don't support downloading music and movies instead of buying them, I also don't support abusing the legal system to bully people and make money. The RIAA has been doing just that for a long time according to several consumer groups.
In this case, theand the are arguing that when the sues thousands of "infringers", they have to file thousands of separate lawsuits and not just one.
Filing one is cheaper and easier, but makes it harder and is unfair for the victims… er, I mean defendants.
Let's hope for the best. Leave people alone and worry about pirating organizations and criminal groups instead.
