Cnet News reports that AT&T confirmed that it is working with the Recording Industry Association of America to test the RIAA's new multi-step anti-piracy program. An AT&T executive confirmed participation in the program while speaking at a digital music conference. A couple other big ISP names also are mentioned in the story as participants.
It doesn't sound like the program has gotten very far yet, and according to Cnet, may be only at the stage of testing response to warnings that are sent out by ISPs to households whose Internet connections have been used for illegal downloads. AT&T and other big ISPs had been rumored to be working with the RIAA since news of the new approach surfaced a few months ago.
