The New Year has begun, and unfortunately the RIAA's war against ordinary citizens is still here. No amnesties, no pardons, no compromise, no compassion, no reason.
While I fully understand that there needs to be some litigation between the content community and the technology community, in order to define the perimeters of copyright law in the digital age, I really wish the RIAA would pick on defendants its own size, and stop making war on the defenseless.
And if that doesn't happen, I hope the federal judiciary will wake up to the massive fraud that is being perpetrated on the courts, and shut it down.
To all those who are fighting the RIAA I wish you good luck.
To all those helping them, my heartfelt thanks.
And to the RIAA and its lawyers, my wish is: I hope that you can find honest work in the New Year.
