Fighting Back Against the RIAA

There seems to be growing resistance to the ongoing scorched-earth RIAA lawsuit / intimidation campaign. Here’s what’s been brewing:

Northwestern University Law School in Chicago will be hosting a submit about the RIAA campaign. It should be a good gathering point for lawyers and people who want to fight back. Take a look.

In the trenches of the legal battles, there’s been some sparks of hope on our side. Tanya Anderson, a single mom who was sued is countersuing the RIAA for Oregon RICO violations, fraud, invasion of privacy, abuse of process, electronic trespass, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, negligent misrepresentation, the tort of “outrage”, and deceptive business practices.

And a Michigan Court outright dismissed a lawsuit against a mother. She won!

As we’ve said so many times before– almost none of the thousands of RIAA suits have ever reached a court, because the cost of fighting is just too much for most families. But now that some are actually coming before judges we may see an unraveling of the private law-enforcement scheme that the RIAA has concocted. If you want to follow the fight, start reading RIAA vs the People. And don’t forget to use your RIAA Radar before making any music purchases.
