RIAA dumps evidence-gathering firm
« on: January 04, 2009, 11:47:02 pm »
The Recording Industry Association of America has dumped the company charged with gathering evidence for use against people accused of illegally sharing copyrighted music, according to a report Sunday in The Wall Street Journal. The RIAA had enlisted MediaSentry to search the Internet for evidence of people sharing large amounts of music. However, MediaSentry only checked to see which songs were being offered; it had no way to check who was downloading them. So, instead the RIAA argued that making a file available is copyright infringement. But that strategy was dealt in April when a federal judge rejected the RIAA's "making available" argument in a lawsuit against a husband and wife accused of copyright infringement.

Further proof if any was needed that their aggressive and heavy handed tactics didn't work.

Very well put DaBee's  8)

Whilst the RIAA may make the pretence of giving filesharers a break it's because they have been abusing the law for so long with not a single contested case won against an alleged filesharer.

Making threats has scared none here, we all know our legal right to download under the copyright law exceptions for personal use.
