Submission + - Could RIAA Website Be a Trick?

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes: "The RIAA announced that it's going to set up a website for people interested in entering into "Pre-Doe" settlements.

Not being a technical person myself, I was wondering if such a website would be safe, or if it could be used as a surreptitious investigative technique, as, for example, by
-planting "cookies"
-tracking people who go to the site
-planting spyware
-etc.

Would appreciate input from tech people out there on (a) whether it would be unsafe and (b) if it would be unsafe whether there is any way for someone approaching the site to take adequate precautions to make it safe."
