Music industry threatens student downloaders at UC

The music industry has sent hundreds of threatening letters to college students across the nation, including dozens at UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz, as part of its campaign against illegal music downloading...

Corynne McSherry, a staff attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said the latest campaign seems like little more than a scare tactic. "These letters are scary. The first impulse is, 'How do I make this go away?' " she said. "If their goal is to stop illegal file sharing, this is not a very effective way of doing it."
