Ah, someone finally pointing out the true sham nature of the RIAA's initial complaint and ex parte discovery process, and the need that the RIAA must have all its ducks lined up from the very beginning, even if they never plan to go to trial on this complaint.

Excellent work on how Defendants point out that just because songs reside on a computer, that is NO EVIDENCE of any actual ILLEGAL DOWNLOADING. That there are many ways that a music file might get onto a computer.
