    sueing is a money game, sony are a multi billionaire coorperation a shit group like the RIAA dont stand a chance

    also, that quote there is quite diplomatic it doesnt say anywhere download copyrighted mp3's, its quite politically correct

    sony can just argue that they implied that users downloaded unofficial group mp3s or unknown bands etc

    Sony's more than that - Sony is a multi-national corporation with its main offices (AFAIK) in Japan, where the issue there is pretty quiet on an international stage.

    On the fairly small chance that RIAA are able to con Congress to put some sort of restrictions on the company, Sony would still have a hefty chunk of business with the rest of the world - Losing business in the USA would be considerable but not critical.

    The only way to really trim Sony in that way is to take it to international law, which is pretty much through the UN (AFAIK), and with the USA government recently disregarding UN rulings with that little war in Iraq (not to mention outlawing something because one non-critical national industry is losing money for once is a pretty trivial thing for the UN compared to wars), I'd pretty much say that the UN would have to be stupid to forget that little pissing-on-UN in order to let it be done.

    If you have to love Bush for something, this has got to be it!

    No doubt, Sony has more business in the USA than in any other country.

    Sony does not have more business in the USA than all other countries combined.

    That's what I mean - While the blow wouldn't be light, it wouldn't be lethal either.

    Sony is also a MEMBER of the RIAA, so i cant see them being sued by it.
