Verizon Tests Sending RIAA Copyright Notices

Verizon Communications customers who pirate music files may soon receive an unwelcome letter from the company.

Verizon, the second-largest phone company in the United States, is expected to begin issuing "copyright notices" on behalf of the Recording Industry Association of America to those accused of illegally downloading songs from the Web, according to sources with knowledge of the agreement.

The sources, who asked for anonymity, said Verizon's letter campaign is part of a test, which is expected to begin on Thursday. Jonathan Lamy, an RIAA spokesman, confirmed the existence of the test but declined further comment.

Let's hope the test fails.  :yes:

this much used phrase: 'illegally downloading songs from the web' intrigues me...

since when is any act of downloading illegal?
there may be some conjecture about the subject material, but is the ACT illegal?

and exactly what is 'the web'?  A great grey cloud of data in the Ether?
What you think is important is rarely urgent
But what you think is Urgent is rarely important

Just remember that...
