Engadget is now reporting that the RIAA is not suing the Scottsdale, Ariz., gentleman for ripping cds, they are suing him for plain old downloading. This was reported widely that he was being sued in the Washington Post and several other outlets. I spoke about it yesterday in a post.
The RIAA is getting quite aggressive, as was pointed out in the engadget article, and is treading on thin ground. Especially if they want to get a ruling on the ripping of legally owned cds.
