She left out my favorite defenses. That alternative acceptable RIAA settlements include either (for corporations) simply deleting any "infringing" files; and (for record company presidents) having a stern talking to the real infringer, provided one can be identified.

I do like her stating the obvious that it will be impossible for them to prove any actual infringement occurred, which is why they must claim "distribution" as an untested legal theory.

Unless, of course, they've been illegally tapping and monitoring all your Internet communications - which are the types of logs they'd like the get the ISP's to keep, and turn over to them without a warrant now under their new, kinder, gentler, cheaper settlement plan that the people are crying out for.
