Ignoring RIAA Lawsuits is Cheaper Than Going to Court

If the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) names you in an illegal music downloading lawsuit, ignore it. At least, that would be better than going to court, according to a recent report by Ars Technica, a technology information Web site.

The report compared the damages awarded against two defendants--Jammie Thomas-Rasset and Joel Tenenbaum, both of whom hired an attorney, showed up in court and defended themselves against the illegal-downloading allegations--with those who simply ignored the charges altogether.
