The RIAA announced late last year that it was moving away from mass lawsuits and towards a set of "graduated response" agreements with US Internet providers. None of the ISPs involved in those talks sounded proud of the fact, though—only Verizon would go on record to tell us that it was not participating. So what happened to the program? We do know that AT&T has signed on and begun forwarding notices, however, as CNET recently reported. And Cox and Comcast are also involved in forwarding infringement letters to customers. But there's (a lot) less here than the RIAA would like.AT&T has confirmed to Ars Technica that it is participating in the RIAA program, but it stresses two things: 1) this is a geographically limited trial program that began last week, not a full-blown deployment and 2) it's not really "graduated response" because there are no sanctions.
