So the RIAA can saddle even non-parties with burdensome and oppressive attorney's fees. I doubt that the RIAA even cares if they collect their fees – only that everyone they set their sights on has to pay and pay and pay! This is completely unjust, and provides no incentive for the RIAA to change its illegal ways in any manner!

If they believed non-party Woody Raymond was part of this case, then they should have sued him directly! They didn't. They haven't found anything incriminating. THEY SHOULD HAVE TO PAY!

All this does is make the law look even more weighted against the little guy.

For those of us without years of courtroom experience: how often are reconsideration motions granted? What are the expected conditions under which such a motion would be granted?
