THE RIAA has set up a dot com business to make it easier for people it accuses of piracy to pay what the industry claims they owe. allows people who have been accused of piracy to enter their case number and pay up without needing to go to court. If people chose to pay this way, the RIAA promises that they will get a "a substantial discount" from what they would have had to settle for before this campaign launched. Officially the RIAA says that the reason for the set up is at the request of people who want their names to be kept off the public record. However according to Wired, the RIAA has been having trouble getting enough evidence to take people to court. Particularly if they sit behind a University network. Still nice money if you can get it. All you have to do is ring someone up, tell them they owe you a sum of money which you could have invented. They then log in and pay up. More here. µ
