Aren't they nice? The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is planning to announce an amnesty for all " noncommercial online copyright infringers", if they erase all illegal music files from their computers. It seems that the amnesty program will only apply to alleged infringers who have not yet been sued by the RIAA. For-profit commercial infringers won't be included in the amnesty.
Here's a cute bit: "Additionally, RIAA amnesty applies solely to sound-recording infringement. The file sharer still could be held liable for infringing upon the underlying music composition."
