Thread: RIAA Sues Family with No Computer

    RIAA Sues Family with No Computer (Again)

    Rockmart, GA -- Unaware that a lawsuit had been filed, the Walls family was shocked Friday when a reporter informed them of a lawsuit against Carma Walls for allegedly using a file sharing program to steal several copyrighted works.


    There is presently speculation by the Walls family that the previous residents may be to blame because the Walls have only resided at their present address “for less than a year” and that they "don’t even have a computer."


    The RIAA has been criticized for bringing lawsuits that are alleged to be used for the purpose of intimidation so that people do not publicly share files. The RIAA defends its actions by saying the lawsuits work to deter illegal activity.

    The Recording Industry Association of America (or RIAA) is the trade group that represents the recording industry in the United States.

    The RIAA has been at the heart of the file-sharing controversy, especially music files in the popular MP3 format uploaded onto the Internet using peer-to-peer software. The RIAA has long contended that sharing of copyrighted music was a form of piracy, applying the well-known computing term to music. Hilary Rosen, the RIAA's president and chief executive officer from 1998 to 2003, was an outspoken critic of peer to peer file sharing, and under her direction, the RIAA waged an aggressive legal campaign trying to eliminate illegal file-sharing worldwide. The RIAA and its member groups argue that Internet distribution of music, without the consent of the owner of the copyright in that music, not only detrimentally affected the profits of their members, but the careers of current and future artists as well, due to possible stagnation of the music industry from lack of innovation and production of a quality product.
    Wow, if you get music be wary of them.

    Why aren't there serious law suits against the RIAA. Federal law suits.

    If I, or anybody tries to sue or extort money out of someone they would be charged and may very likely go to jail.

    Did this family do anything against the RIAA about this? I would love to see a huge ruling against the RIAA in the Billions of dollars not just millions, so their stupidity becomes so expensive, they will not even thing of suing anyone.
