IF YOU DO NOT RESOLVE OUR CLAIMS AGAINST YOU WITHIN

It appears my sister is being sued by the RIAA.

My sister showed my a letter she received from [some law firm], via her student email account from her school, stating that they are filing a lawsuit against her, and that she has 20 days to respond in order to settle outside of court, else be sued for everything. I've read that the law firm likes to target college students at schools like hers (on the smaller side, wealthier kids) because of the assumption that the defendant's parents have a lot of money. We do not. We are in debt, massively. She hasn't told my parents yet. Right now, we're trying to figure out what to do.
Does anyone have any experience with something like this? What can she do? What are our options here? Does she settle? Do we fight? Given that they (seemingly) tracked her through Limewire, do they actually have real proof against her?
