Another Wrongfully Accused Music Sharer?
from the don't-speak-Spanish dept
Following last month's discovery that the RIAA wrongfully accused a woman who had no idea what Kazaa was, the EFF has now found another person they say was wrongfully accused of copyright infringement. The RIAA lawsuit claims that he was sharing hundreds of Latin songs, but the guy says he doesn't know Spanish, doesn't listen to Latin songs and doesn't use Kazaa. As more of these turn up, it will be interesting to see how the RIAA does damage control. So far, they've just been quietly dropping the lawsuits (though, still putting the blame on the end user, rather than their tactics for tracking people down). I wonder if the wrongfully accused folks can turn around and sue the RIAA for putting them through all this trouble without any real evidence.
