RIAA apologizes for threatening letter

The Recording Industry Association of America apologized Monday to Penn State University for sending an incorrect legal notice of alleged Internet copyright violations.

The notice and subsequent apology appears to mark the first time that a faulty notification has been made public. The incident also shows just how easily automated programs that search for copyrighted material can be fooled, as well as how disruptive such notices can be on college campuses.

We all make mistakes, but how could a computer be wrong? :thumbsup: Looks like they will have to be careful of future "threatening letters."
