LSA [College of Literature, Science, and the Arts] sophomore Erin Breisacher said she stopped downloading music illegally after hearing about the possibility of receiving a lawsuit, but now that the RIAA has stopped pursuing lawsuits she “might start downloading again.”
“I think it is going to be a big deal,” LSA junior Amber Clark said. “A lot of people are going to download more, especially college students.”
LSA senior Chad Nihranz, said he thinks more peer-to-peer downloading sites will come out as a result of the dropped lawsuits.
“I figure, if there aren’t as many lawsuits they will come out with more software to allow students to download more,” he said.
People, keep in mind: the litigation spigot can be turned back on as fast as it was shut off.
