In SONY BMG Music Entertainment v. Tenenbaum, the RIAA has requested leave to file a brief responding to the amicus curiae brief filed by the Free Software Foundation.
The proposed response includes ad hominem attacks on (a) the Free Software Foundation, (b) "Recording Industry vs. The People", and (c) Ray Beckerman. It states that Beckerman "is subject to a pending sanctions motion" in UMG Recordings v. Lindor, but neglects to advise the Court that the RIAA's lawyers are "subject to a Rule 11 sanctions motion" in that same case.
