Correction. The motion in London-Sire v. Doe 1 (formerly Arista v. Does 1-21) did not show violation of the cease and desist order, it showed prior violation of the Massachusetts licensing statute. I made an error in reading the printouts. However, we have learned of instances of MediaSentry's violation of the cease and desist order from printouts filed in a new case, LaFace v. Does 1-17. -R.B.]
The motion to vacate the RIAA's papers that was made by the students is based on proof that MediaSentry has been violating the Massachusetts statutes, as stated in cease and desist order previously issued by the Massachusetts State Police on January 2, 2008, continuing to conduct investigations without an investigator's license.
