New RIAA charge: Flouting with Intent
« on: September 08, 2009, 04:01:43 pm »

The Recording Industry Association of America has requested that Joel Tenenbaum, the Boston University graduate student convicted of illegal file-sharing, be slapped with an injunction for allegedly inciting file-sharing activities through online mediums.

In a motion filed in a Massachusetts federal court, the RIAA argued that Tenenbaum has violated this summer’s ruling—which ordered him to pay $675,000 for file-sharing—by encouraging other internet users to engage in sharing activity and it asked that Tenenbaum be prohibited from promoting sharing.

The motion comes in response to a file-package posted on the Swedish file-sharing web-site The Pirate Bay that advertises a set of 30 songs—the same songs Tenenbaum was ordered to pay damages for by sharing online—as the “The $675,000 Mixtape.”

The RIAA argue that Tenenbaum promoted the torrent and other illegal downloading activity, in violation of the ruling against him, with a post on a Twitter account devoted to his legal case called JoelFightsBack. “Interesting: a “joel” torrent list of the 30 songs is now on thepiratebay/other torrent sites and is being DL widely in protest,” Tenenbaum wrote.

But in an interview with The Crimson yesterday, RIAA Spokesperson Cara A. Duckworth said Tenenbaum’s illegal activity goes beyond the Twitter post.

Duckworth said Tenenbaum has flouted the letter and the spirit of the ruling against him by allowing links to file-sharing web-sites to be posted on his web-site, repeatedly arguing for the legality of file-sharing in interviews, and by keeping illegal files on his computer after being convicted.

Tenenbaum and his legal team contend that his recent statements represent nothing more than an exercise of his basic rights.

“He is a citizen of the United States with full First Amendment liberties and he should exercise them as he sees fit,” said Law School Professor and Tenenbaum’s attorney Charles R. Nesson ’60.

So the RIAA not only want to control what you do, but also want to control what you say !!!! There have been a couple of guys in history that I remember. One was called Hitler and the other was called Stalin ............. etc, etc.    8)

Well, the one thing I see that bothers me here is that they're complaining about him still having the 30 songs on his pc. If he's been ordered to pay $675k for these 30 songs, a total which is absolutely ludicrous, then I don't know about you but I just got ordered to pay for those songs on my pc and they are mine from here out and would argue that in court to my death.
When you wake up each morning always try to remember tomorrow is never your option, it's God's. Love like you want to. Live like you aren't afraid. And ALWAYS try to remember that even if it seems personal it's never as important as something you may have forgotten to do today.
