article: how RIAA identifies music pirates

This article implies that only people sharing music files on their hard drive over the internet are in danger of RIAA lawsuits.

This would explain how the "blogspot listing a Rapidshare link" sites stay immune from the RIAA. The blogspot says "hey it's on Rapidshare, it's not my hard drive". Rapidshare can say "hey what a user puts on Rapidshare is their business". Either the blogspot user or Rapidshare will kill the RS link if someone associated with the shared album complains/asks.
