The recording industry has found its next target in its fight against piracy in cloud storage, even while the days of file sharing may be winding down.RIAA’s appetite for new targets seems insatiable. The most recent name to come into its crosshair is the cloud-based computing service Box.net, about which we reported a few times here at P2PON. The service offers users storage space on its servers for files which include, of course, music and films.As reported, RIAA has not actually filed a lawsuit against Box.net, but asked the company to remove infringing content from its cloud. Apparently, Box.net entered the trade group’s scope due to a user who violated the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, or DMCA, by uploading music before its official release.Although Box.net keeps the identity of its users anonymous, it has assured the authorities of its collaboration.“We take the confidentiality of our customers’ information very seriously, but just like all other businesses, we are legally required to comply with court orders,” Box.net said in a statement.” “Our compliance will be limited to the information the court requires we produce.”
