The University Of Wisconsin is pushing back
against the RIAA and is refusing to forward on the organization's new "pre-settlement"
letters to college students without a proper subpoena. "These settlement letters are an attempt to short circuit the legal process to rely on universities to be their legal agent,"
says a spokesman
for the University. "We do not want to be a party to that; we are not the legal agent for the recording agency, nor do we aspire to (be)."
