Based on the standards set by the Recording Industry Association of America, it is without a doubt that peer to peer sharing falls under the copyright violations for all music shared and acquired from other people using file transfer services. Such P2P clients as Kazaa, Limewire and Bearshare offer such a service of sharing files. But while they are the software providers for such access points, liability is concentrated towards the people who actually transfer the files.
Considering the millions of people on the web, it is safe to say that a large portion of the world population is susceptible to the lawsuits that RIAA has set. But regardless, people do not heed this concern very much, probably rendering the whole scenario like a useless organization or cause.
However, it would not be surprising that after some times, proper implementation and track down on such file acquisitions will be properly defined. It may be broad at the moment, but donâ€™t let that fool you. The worst is yet to come.
