The RIAA–What Sweethearts

August 13th, 2006

Despite lesser publicity than at first, the RIAA continues to seek useless, vindictive lawsuits against people they believe have cheated them out of record profits. They really have to sue such people, don’t they? After all, cheating others out of record profits is their territory, and they can’t very well have other people horning in on their racket, can they?

One case in Particular, Warner et al v. Scantlebury, shows the record labels at their finest. In this case, the defendant died. Did that end the case? Of course not! If the deceased ripped off a few songs over BitTorrent, the RIAA cannot allow a simple thing like the offender’s death to get in the way! So the lawyers are going to sue the deceased’s estate. After all, the deceased person’s family probably cloned his iPod minutes after his death and are listening to all that stolen music right now!

But here’s the compassionate part: they are holding off the attack dogs for 60 days to allow the family to grieve. Then they sue the ass off the memory of their loved one.
