Kevin Hearn, FrontCode
Technologies' president, was nowhere to be found; it seems that he didn’t return any of the phone calls and messages in weeks.
Another company targeted by the RIAA, eDonkey, has closed the New York office and none of the top management representatives could be contacted for statements.
uTorrent and Frostwire,
three more operate file-sharing networks, are believed to be included in RIAA’s list as well. Their officials declined any comments.
RIAA considers that any file-sharing network has to reconsider its position, after both Grokster and
KaZaA have lost the lawsuits they were involved in.
The companies operating such networks have two options: to install filters that prevent users from sharing files that infringe copyright, or to shut down their entire operation.
