TechTV publishes list of RIAA targets


— 3:41 AM on July 24, 2003

TechTV has compiled a list of usernames from the RIAA's recent wave of subpoenas targeting peer-to-peer file traders. The only shows Kazaa and Grokster user names, and though there are a few juvenile entries like munkeyspanker21 and Ghettobootybabe8, the list isn't as full of l33t-speak as one might expect.

Since the RIAA's latest legal actions are likely designed more to scare users away from illegal P2P file trading than actually recuperate losses incurred as a result of copyright violations, any published "hit list" should actually compliment the RIAA's efforts. The more exposure targeted individuals get in more mainstream media, the more wary casual pirates may be about firing up Kazaa.
