Are Plaintiff's actually allowed to seize computer equipment and force the making of copies during the process of a deposition? Are they in any way responsible for damage to said equipment – damage which may well exceed the actual cost of the hardware involved by many times based on the value of the information stored on said computers and players – if their technicians are incompetent? And how incompetent are the RIAA process servers themselves, given months of time and thousands of dollars so spent?
