Downloaders who admit they done wrong could be let off the hook
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is believed to be preparing an amnesty for users of peer-to-peer (P2P) sites, but it comes with tough conditions.
The RIAA refuses to comment on the plan, or even that is being drawn up, but vnunet.com understands it will apply to people who admit they illegally share music files across the internet.
Users will have to complete a notarised amnesty form that includes the following promises:
- To destroy any CDs they have created.
- To delete any music files from their PCs that the RIAA deems illegal.
- To never participate in illegal file sharing again.
- To include a photo of themselves.
