Is anyone tracking the outcomes of the lawsuits the RIAA has filed? Slashdot has a link to a story about the RIAA suing the wrong person. The RIAA accused the woman of of sharing more than 2000 songs using Kazaa. She insists that she has never shared or downloaded any songs, and beyond that, she has a Mac and Kazaa isn't available for Macintosh. The RIAA has withdrawn its suit. Anecdotal evidence on the lawsuits has been accumulating. Is anyone tracking the numbers on the outcomes of the suits? Information on the demographics of the lawsuit targets and the outcomes (number of settlements, cost of settlement, etc.) would be useful for evaluating and responding to the lawsuits.
