This was emailed to me with out a source: looks like BS at the moment. It has been pointed out that Hillary Rosen no longer works for the RIAA.
New York, NY - United States authorities have issued a stern warning
to American users of Oink, the popular file sharing portal shut down
by Dutch and British police this week: You are not off the hook.
In a historic partnership with the RIAA, Federal authorities are now
suggesting that they will seek to prosecute Oink users who have
downloaded or shared in excess of 50 albums.
"We will follow up. If we don't, this will never stop. This
BitTorrent stuff has to be stopped now. Oink users knew what they
were doing was wrong. They even had a system in place to extend
invitations to potential users, thus making the problem worse,"
commented RIAA President Hilary Rosen on Tuesday.
Details regarding the investigation of American users will reportedly
surface in early November.
