The RIAA in a prior case before the same judge.
Hence why the counterclaims are being upheld.

The IRS?

I'd say Grand Theft Auto, but I'm not even sure what the hell "abuse of process" is, or how it corresponds to driving like a bat out of hell in a stolen cop car while shooting at hookers.

I can't wait to see those litigious arsewipes sued into the gutter. The RIAA could have had it all, if they had adapted to the realities of online music distribution early on. Instead, they're vilified & hated, and sooner or later (hopefully sooner, with this sut) they will be gone.

Heckuva job, fellas.

/oh, and DIAF while you're at it.

If you're making music just to make money, you deserve to have your album/music stolen. Hence, the RIAA can burn in the lowest depths of Hell where it belongs.

This.

I'm not a professional musician by any means. When I was in a band the only compensation we received was that we occasionally got gas money and a floor to sleep on at some concert goers house.

They don't have Lamborghinis... they have Masaratis and drive 185, at least until they lose their license.

The RIAA's crude, thuggish tactics have done a huge disservice to artists who (legitimately) desire to protect their copyrights. It's as if the government were routinely breaking down people's doors in the middle of the night to search their houses for evidence of tax evasion and hauling suspected tax evaders off to the town square for public flogging, often on slender or flawed evidence. Yes, tax evasion is wrong and should be illegal, but the response would be so intrusive, the punishments so disproportionate to the offense, that public sympathy would be solidly on the tax evaders' side.

Of course, even when the RIAA loses a case, they're such mind- boggling douchebags that they'll just refuse to pay the restitutions/court fees ordered by a federal judge.

iTunes has shown the world that people are willing to pay for a product when they perceive the price to be fair and just. Why the RIAA didn't come up with a system like that after Napster got big is beyond me.

fark em. fark em all.

Then they can't drive and go back to their limos.

My old band: www.myspace.com/barroompirates

We were too poor to actually record in a studio, ha

The RIAA should've adopted a better business model when the concept of fileshare hit mainstream. Now that the new technology is demanding that artists and recording companies go back to earning money by actually performing, the RIAA is pissed.

If I hear something I like, I'll support the band. I'll buy a cd or a t-shirt. I'll go to a concert. I'll make a donation. Or if my broke college ass can't afford that, I get others to listen and maybe they'll help supports the band. But as soon as someone gets uppity about someone sharing the music with others I stop supporting. Music is meant to be shared. How the hell do you think bands are supposed to advertise? By letting people listen to their music.

RIAA: DIAF
