RIAA Keeps Sending Letters in Maverick v. Chowdhury

In Maverick v. Chowdhury the RIAA continues to send letters indicating they are "willing to consider any information", this time taking "great umbrage" at being called liars in Mr. Chowdhury's counsel's previous letter:

May 15, 2007, Letter of Brian E. Moran*
May 22, 2007, Letter of Ray Beckerman*

* Document published online at Internet Law & Regulation

Great Umbrage, huh? And that means what, if you're not going to give further response?

Have other courts really deemed the RIAA's evidence sufficient in other cases. Maybe it has survived immediate dismissal, but it surely hasn't been tested in any actual trial yet.

As to the RIAA (non)threats, there is no other way to view it. The whole tone of this letters is that you and/or your family are proven infringers, and you must pay. But if we're wrong, you must tell us who to go after, because we, obviously, can't find them, or develop a case against them, ourselves!

ANY claim can be resolved in an expeditious manner, if you're willing to throw enough money at it.


Great response, Ray! Great reading of their actual intent here!

1. I know of no case in which their so-called evidence has been tested, and passed the test.

2. Their so-called expert was first deposed on February 23, 2007, and, as you know, testified himself right out of the case.
