An AT&T exec admitted on Tuesday at a music industry gathering that is company is working with the RIAA to combat file sharing. Jim Cicconi told his audience that his company has started to send warning letters to P2P users suspected of copyright infringement.

CNet News wrote about the admission, which apparently put AT&T's PR department into overdrive mode. Here are the various addendums to the original CNet story that pretty mush show why three strikes will go nowhere:

Update: Wednesday, 9:00 a.m. PDT: To include quotes from AT&T and information about Comcast and Cox.

Update: Wednesday 10:37 a.m. PDT: To include statement from AT&T spokeswoman who wished to correct what she had previously said. She says now that the company asserts in the letters that it has the right to terminate a policy.She said, however, the company has no intention of doing so.

Update: Wednesday 3:40 p.m. PDT: AT&T says that it won't ever terminate service of customers without a court order.
