Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
It is a very expensive process to fight a civil suit like this. A woman who recently tried to challenge a RIIA for illegal downloading lost and spent over $125,000 just on attorney's fees. Many campuses are now trying to combat the RIAA rights with that of the students and part of that is giving the RIAA access to the transfers of data that were done on and through their web servers (which per the agreement your daughter probably clicked ok to when she started using the schools servers for internet access).
So if your daughter has ever (even once) downloaded a song, movie, etc. improperly, it is cheaper to pay the fee for copyright violation then to try to fight a suit.
Sorry. Good luck. If you have any other related questions please let me know. If you found this answer helpful please accept so I can continue to help others like you in the future. Thank you.
