[Wired] RIAA Qualifies Statement on No New Copyright Lawsuits

The Recording Industry Association of America is clearing the air over its comments that it has not initiated litigation in months against alleged copyright scofflaws.

On Friday, the RIAA announced it was abandoning its legal strategy of suing individuals for copyright infringement, and said it had not sued anybody for months.

Ray Beckerman, an attorney the RIAA has declared as "vexatious," posted Friday on his blog — Recording Industry vs. The People — that dozens of RIAA lawsuits have been filed within the past couple of weeks.
