RIAA Underestimates Influence of 2.0 World
The RIAA has fought a number of lawsuits against pre-teens and grandmothers, and Ray Beckerman’s “Recording Industry vs The People" site has been keeping track of all of them. Any time another person is hauled to court, Ray carries as much detail as he can scrape up, mainly in an effort to catalogue legal arguments, definitions and provide other materials and resources for defending lawyers.
It has proven to be of fantastic value to anyone who has found themselves in the bullseye of the RIAA and will most likely be the ‘thin edge of the wedge’ that ultimately forces the RIAA to find a different approach to its business.
