US recording association to stop piracy lawsuits

The US recording association said Friday that it will stop suing people who download music illegally and focus instead on getting Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to take action...

The Internet rights group the Electronic Frontier Foundation, in a comment on its blog, welcomed the end to the lawsuit campaign calling it "long overdue" and a "failure."
But EFF commentator Fred von Lohmann wrote that "more troubling is the news that the RIAA is pressuring US ISPs into adopting some sort of '3 strikes' approach, similar to those it's been seeking in Europe."
