They are not obligated by law, as far as I know. It is a matter of how much pressure RIAA puts on the ISPs. Verizon (I think it was) refused to give out it's customer's names and such for a long time. I think they gave in.

My download patterns didn't change at all, but the RIAA can fucking eat themselves.

they didn't give in, they were taken to court and ordered to turn it over. i believe they are still appealing it.

The whole thing is blown out of proportion
if you think about it.. there are always going to be people sharing music and you can easily do it without the riaa knowing its just propoganda..
The best thing to do is take over the riaa website and post the proper message of sharing being the best thing.. *oh thats already been done.. they hired some noobie system admin who left very cummon backdoors on the box.. my advice dont worry.. They are just trying to get money but it won't last

As the register pointed out, Universal isn't doing anything special. I would summarize it, but you really must read the article, they have a rather colorful way of putting it. See it here .

I think I can summarize it in one word: "karma."

i saw in the newspaper today how they are thinking of allowing people to send in a notorized admission of their file sharing habits in return for a guarantee from the riaa that they will not be sued. however, the guy from the electronic frontier foundation pointed out that the riaa is not the only group who owns copyrights and can sue you, so it may not be a good idea.

my 2 cents:
"when you buy a cd a tape any form of music, you own it, and seeing as how the law hasn't changed your allowed to dub it and give it to your friends without charge. Artist didn't mind when you made a copy of the tape for your friends.. but now that its mp3 they decide to complain about it. But on what legal grounds do they stand, your not selling the song
your not making any profit at all from sharing it. so how can you be sued for something that has been done for years now but by different means"
end my 2 cents :p

i don't think you were ever allowed to "dub" a cd or tape that you bought and give it to your friends. its just that the riaa couldn't determine who was doing that. now that its online, they can see who is sharing music.

Rather than determining who was doing it, it wasn't being done so commonly and easily on such a large scale. It is and has always been against the law, and you are a criminal for doing it. However, with this much of a loss, they decided it is worth taking the proper steps to finally enforce it.

My question is, not sure of the details, but when the FTC ruled the RIAA was price fixing, how much and how long? Plus, we all know how bloated companies and governments like to make their figures. Chances are with the pirates creating loss of sales, the RIAA would still owe us money if we factored in the price fixing.

I believe there would be grounds to have a class action suit if you can prove you spent significant amount of money on music when the price fixing was going on (always?). I am also looking into, for an interesting paper, ways that the RIAA may be a terrorist organization (legally). So hopefully someone will give them the "whatfor" soon.

BTW, Here Is The Link from the Federal Trade Commission for the latest ruling on price fixing in recording industry. This isn't the only one, and I am still looking on their site (so straight from horses mouth) for the one for $480 million.
