RIAA goes after YouTube users

MoneyControl reports RIAA is sending cease-and-desist letters to YouTube users who have put up videos of things such as themselves dancing to music they haven't licensed.
Clearly an insanity plea no longer covers the RIAA’s stupidity. From trying to orchestrate illegal takedowns in other countries a la The Pirate Bay to sending cease-and-desist letters to some poor user who has just recorded himself doing silly things to a song no one will even remember a week later. Youtube is all about expressing yourself in your own little corner on the net. Guess with Big Brother watching, soon even putting out harmless videos will become illegal.
