“‘Although the [Digital Millennium Copyright Act] sets forth the minimum requirements for seeking a subpoena, RIAA is not seeking a subpoena as to everyone who is illegally distributing copyrighted recordings,’ the letter said. ‘Rather, at this time, RIAA is focusing on egregious infringers, those who are engaging in substantial amounts of illegal activity.’

An RIAA spokesperson could not quantify what the group means by ‘substantial amounts,’ but the group called its response ‘proportionate to the scope of a pervasive piracy problem today.’”

That’s ########.  They’re using scare tactics and not making any real money off of these things.  Someone should sue them for being a nuisance.
