Exactly! The RIAA has been known just to go to an ISP in an area with a compliant that someone is sharing file-illegal and then the ISP will send out a letter to everyone in that sector (probably just 5 people) and then wait for someone to respond. If someone does, ooops, guess we found our culprit!!!
I doubt the police could get a search warrant so easily as the RIAA appears to be doing.
Judge Tells RIAA They Don't Get To Randomly Hunt Through Everyone's Computers
Finally someone stood up to the RIAA.
The RIAA demanded full access to her computer -- which she rightly felt was a violation of her privacy, as there was a lot more on her computer that obviously had nothing to do with the case. A judge has agreed and told the woman she can hire her own forensics expert, and bill the RIAA for any expenses.
This is like me claiming you have stolen a CD from me, and so you have to hire a forensics expert to search your house for any traces of the CD I claim you stole. It's ludicris. I doubt the police could get a search warrant so easily as the RIAA appears to be doing.
