AT&T and the RIAA
AT&T has recently announced that it will join several other internet providers in sending notices to copyright violators. Since December, when the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) decided to stop suing individuals for piracy, they have been working with internet providers, in an effort to cut off users who download media illegally. Though AT&T is firm in saying that they do not intend to start kicking users off, and will not be sharing user information with the RIAA, it will begin alerting customers when they may be violating copyright laws. For the full story, take a look at the Associated Press release on the subject.
