Music Piracy - Another Round in the War

I think Verizon's fight to prevent the RIAA from getting the names of copyright pirates was mainly a PR affair. They want to be able to say they only give out the names when their arm is twisted and really they are on their users' side. I think the other ISPs are happy with this too because they can claim the same thing. So now that little PR matter is solved the RIAA is back and it looks like the ISPs efforts will result in the song thieves having to pay more to the RIAA to cover the extra costs. Serves 'em right.
