With everyone talking about the Jammie Thomas case, someone who preferred to remain anonymous, alerted us to the fact that Mavis Roy, a woman who did not own a computer for a while, but was still sued by the big record labels, has "settled" her case with the record labels with neither side having to pay anything. We had written about this case earlier in the year. She did not own a computer on the dates she was accused of file sharing, and then when she got the legal threats from the RIAA she thought it was a joke and ignored them. Finally, some law students took up her case, and it appears they've worked out this "settlement." While Roy suggests this is a "victory" in that she didn't have to pay anything, she's right that it's not that much of a victory when the recording industry is still able to bring such bogus lawsuits to court with no penalty.

Such nice people at the RIAA. They probably rob their grandmothers as well.  :butt:
