It's bad PR, yes, but when you're the only game in town, you can get away with it. It's ingenious in the fact that they know it will take years to resolve the issues at hand (are Jane/John Doe suits legal, is $3000 in damages per song "reasonable," if they don't verify the validity of the shared files, is it infringement, is sharing actual infringement, etc). By the time there is enough case law on the books to answer those questions, they'll have changed tactics.
