American company, Integrated Information Systems Inc, has settled its legal problem with RIAA and has agreed to pay one million dollars in damages to RIAA.
Company had a dedicated fileserver for its employees to share and listen MP3s in its internal network. The server was never accessible outside company's own network, but it still violated copyright laws, allowing company employees without original copy of the music to listen the tracks.

"This sends a clear message that there are consequences if companies allow their resources to further copyright infringement," said Matt Oppenheim, RIAA Senior Vice President, Business and Legal Affairs.
