Yeah, I would object too. Loudly and longly. The fact that a well-funded opponent can "punish" you without recourse through the court system, libel you as a service avoider when you work in the legal industry yourself, and cause you more attorney fees than their settlement offers usually entail without even suing you in the first case, with no recourse of your own when they're denied those attempts only after high costs, is Outrageous!! Harassing Woody Raymond costs the RIAA essentially nothing. They're funded out of the obscene record company profits to do precisely this. THEY SHOLD HAVE TO PAY OVER THIS!!

I'm just a 1L, but is this not an Abuse of Process tort?
