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.
