EFF Statement on Court Order Requiring Verizon to Identify Users Pending Further Rulings

"RIAA's claim that it has an emergency need to violate the privacy of the two Verizon users is weak, especially since one of those users has already filed a declaration stating that he has disabled KaZaA entirely," said EFF Legal Director Cindy Cohn. "Once again, RIAA has shown that it is willing to sacrifice normal procedures and processes that protect Americans' privacy and constitutional rights to protect its business model. The over 60 million KaZaA users (more people than voted for our President) are sending a clear signal that the industry is failing to meet their needs."
