Coleman launches inquiry into RIAA's piracy crackdown
Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Sen. Norm Coleman on Thursday began an inquiry into the recording industry's copyright lawsuits against online music swappers, saying the tactics could ensnare innocent people.

Coleman, the chairman of the Senate's permanent subcommittee on investigations, asked the Recording Industry Association of America for, among other things, copies of its subpoenas issued to Internet providers, and description of its safeguards against targeting innocent people.

"The industry has legitimate concerns about copyright infringement," said Coleman, R-Minn. "We are dealing with the stealing of a recording artist's songs, and the industry's profits. The industry has every right to develop practical remedies for protecting its rights.

"Yet, the industry seems to have adopted a 'shotgun' approach that could potentially cause injury and harm to innocent people who may have simply been victims of circumstance, or possessing a lack of knowledge of the rules related to digital sharing of files."

The RIAA has issues 900 federal subpoenas against computer users suspected of illegally sharing music files on the Internet, with roughly 75 new subpoenas being approved each day, court officials say.

Recording Industry Association of America, I think. Something to that effect.
