Reprint of March 4, 2007, "Foxtrot" Comic Strip by Bill Amend, about the RIAA

In honor of the RIAA's supposed "cessation" of new litigations last August -- something which may come as a surprise to the hundreds and hundreds of people who have been sued since then, some this month -- I would like to take this opportunity to reprint our March 1, 2007, post.

The well known Sunday comic strip "Foxtrot" by Bill Amend featured as its subject in the March 4, 2007, edition, the RIAA's lawsuits against single moms, widows, grandmothers, dead people, and children.

This comic strip is reproduced here with the gracious permission of its creator, Mr. Bill Amend. We are deeply grateful to Mr. Amend for his permission, and for his concern over this important issue in our society.

Ray, the direct link to the version hosted at gocomics.com seems not to work any longer

But I'm happy to report that the other comic which "RIAA-Richard" would probably like to call a "road map for would be infringers" has its direct link still working. :-)

Will they sue them next for aiding and abeting(sp?) filesharing"criminals"?

Hi Alter_Fritz,
Thanks for letting me know. I put in a better "gocomics" link for the back copies.

It was good then, and It's good now. One belly crawler suing another.
