Senator Issues Warning on RIAA Music Downloading Amnesty Program

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on September 9, 2003

Sen. Norm Coleman, who has taken an active interest in the agressive efforts by the music industry to prevent music downloading, issued a statement on September 8 responding to the RIAA’s amnesty program, which said in part:

  • “The newly proposed “amnesty” is clearly a strategy by the industry to address some of the concerns I and others have had in this matter. But, it raises new issues that require careful analysis and review. An amnesty that could involve millions of kids submitting and signing legal documents that plead themselves guilty to the Recording Industry Association of America may not be the best approach to achieving a balance between protecting copyright laws and punishing those who violate those laws.”
