Should RIAA And Bed-Fellows Be Criminally Investigated ?
« on: April 07, 2009, 12:36:33 pm »
Some think they should ..  :S

The term ‘Bad Actor’ is popular with politicians and the many and various representatives of  the Big 4 music labels.
Bad Actor -

A person that attempts to lie, cheat, or deceive …

MediaSentry is a bad actor.For years it’s been the lynchpin of RIAA file sharing cases against innocent American men, women and children.
Which makes the deeply troubled RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), virtually owned and operated by Vivendi Universal (France), Sony (Japan), EMI (Britain), and Warner Music (US, but controlled by a Canadian), an even worse actor.
‘Evidence’ produced by MediaSentry — bought by SafeNet Digital Rights Management for cash and stock consideration of $20 million in 2005 –  is still openly presented in US courtrooms by the RIAA just as though it’s accurate and reliable and developed by credible sources.
But yesterday, the company was sold to rival MediaDefender for a paltry $136,000 in cash and a promise of $800,000 in a year.
Just $136,000 for a company which only three years earlier SafeNet had bought for twenty million dollars?
MediaDefender is owned by ARTISTdirect.

“MediaDefender boss Randy Saaf and sidekick Octavio Herrera, who watched helplessly as their most sensitive documents ended up online for all to see, recently left the company for pastures new,” said a recent p2pnet post.
“Parasitical MediaSentry, in turn, was recently fired by Vivendi Universal, EMI, Warner Music and Sony Music’s RIAA.”
One its principal ‘experts,’ Dr Doug Jacobson, has repeatedly been shown up as an expert in junk science, not hard facts.

This article is quite long but has plenty of facts to read for those wanting more information regarding the organisations involved in creating sham cases against filesharers.

A class action law suit from all those they have sued for the terms of:
mental anguish
harm to reputation
and loss of income

assuming they get the same crack pot judges that they use against the people, could easily make a large dent in these companies anti p2p operations.
