It's future tense. They'll stop suing people when their big plan to stop suing people officially starts.

Or they won't.

Nah, they have been claiming that they haven't been suing for months.

Quote:

All of the pending RIAA cases, including the infamous Jammie Thomas case, will continue, Duckworth said. It was not immediately known how many outstanding lawsuits were out there. She said the RIAA has not instituted a new lawsuit for months, a position of which is disputed by Ray Beckerman of Recording Industry vs. The People.

They had to say something after they flagrantly disobeyed court orders.
