Ray,
I happened to notice that the case "SONY v. Does 1-10 (Fresno, CA)" dose not appear when you follow the link.

Ray Beckerman said...

Thanks, ryan.... I fixed it.
Much appreciated.

Gary said...

Ray,
I noticed that no Connecticut cases are listed. Do you know if this state has any consumer laws or rules that would discourage the RIAA?

Ray Beckerman said...

It doesn't work that way, Gary. No state consumer law could stop federal copyright cases. Federal law trumps state law under the U.S. Constitution.

The only reason Connecticut isn't listed is that I don't happen to know of any cases in Connecticut.

I find it interesting in Warner v. Maravilla that they dismissed their case the moment the Defendant pointed out that they have no case. The judge didn't even seem involved in this action, although other judges admit they don't understand the technology, yet rule that a case exists (refuse to dismiss) anyway.

Hey Ray,

I noticed you have North Carolina listed at the top, but no NC cases listed. Is this because there are none, or did they get removed for some reason?

Ray Beckerman said...

No, it's because I'm getting senile.

But boy am I lucky to have readers like you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
