RIAA Must Go Through Court

THIS COULD BE ENDGAME. A federal appeals court has just ruled that the RIAA can’t force internet service providers to turn over the names of suspected filesharers (NYTimes article). And if the RIAA can’t get the names, they can’t file suits.

Unfortunately, there are hundreds of people who have already fallen victim to these illegal subpoenas. They’ve had to pay thousands of dollars each to settle suits or to avoid having a suit filed against them. Downhill Battle is starting a campaign today to demand that the major record labels return all of the money that they have extorted from families and individuals.

UPDATE: We have just issued a press release calling for the RIAA to return all settlement money. Read the release (pdf).
