Lawyers hired by  Vivendi Universal, EMI, Warner Music and Sony BMG’s RIAA will stoop to any level in their relentless attacks on people chosen to feature in their bizarre sue ‘em all marketing campaign.
Now, the RIAA was granted ex parte discovery in Motown Record Co. v Doe, notes Recording Industry vs The People, “but is using information obtained for purposes of extracting monetary settlements”.
“Because Plaintiffs [ie, the Big 4] routinely obtain ex parte discovery in their John Doe infringement suits, as they themselves have pointed out, their factual assertions supporting their good cause argument are never challenged by an adverse party and their investigative methods remain free of scrutiny.”

So said Oregon state attorney general Hardy Myers who at the time also noted the RIAA might have been illegally spying on University of Oregon students and ferreting out data they’re not entitled to. “They often settle their cases quickly before defendants obtain legal representation and begin to conduct discovery,” he said.

In this latest travesty, Motown Records, owned by Universal Music, is demanding $4,000 and up from USC undergraduates, “in exchange for not being named in a copyright infringement lawsuit currently pending in federal court in Los Angeles,”  says LAist.
Judge Manuel L. Real’s October 7, 2008 order states USC student information is, “to be used for the sole purpose of obtaining injunctive relief,” says the story. But what’s a judge’s order to the RIAA

Lets hope this information is relayed back to the Judge for a contempt of court hearing.
