Following up from thier false claims last week we now have more lies to cover the first set http://www.techdirt.com/articles/20081223/1701593209.shtml
Following last week's announcement that the RIAA was going to back off using mass lawsuits, some were pretty confused by the RIAA's subsequent claim that it had actually stopped filing such lawsuits back in August. In fact, it turned out to be an outright lie, as plenty of lawsuits had been filed pretty much right up until the announcement. However, the RIAA is now trying to explain its "no new lawsuits" message by claiming that it actually meant no new lawsuits in the pipeline. The ones filed since August were apparently already "in motion" and apparently in RIAA-land once you kick off the process of filing a bogus lawsuit based on flimsy evidence, the inertia is simply too powerful to pull it back and stop it from running its course. Or did I misunderstand the RIAA's statement on the matter?
What can anyone expect from this group of mafioso wannabes, when they stop attacking music fans and get on with talking to them to see what they wish to buy and how they wish to buy it more progress will take place, until then the rhetoric churn continues,
