Will new RIAA tactic boost P2P file sharing?

newtley writes "The RIAA claim that it'll stop suing people may have serious consequences. For the RIAA. When it dropped its attack on seven University of Michigan students, Recording Industry vs The People wondered if the move was linked to three investigations, with MediaSentry as the target, before Michigan's Department of Labor and Economic Growth. Now, "LSA sophomore Erin Breisacher said she stopped downloading music illegally after hearing about the possibility of receiving a lawsuit, but now that the RIAA has stopped pursuing lawsuits she 'might start downloading again'," says the Michigan Daily, going on to quote LSA senior Chad Nihranz, as saying,"I figure, if there aren't as many lawsuits they will come out with more software to allow students to download more.""
