First Rule About RIAA Court Cases: You Don't Talk About RIAA Court Cases
from the seems-a-bit-extreme dept
Just Another Joe writes in to point out that the RIAA is up to its typical excessive behavior. In one of the many RIAA lawsuits over unauthorized distribution of music online, the defendant's lawyers are trying to depose RIAA representatives -- but the RIAA is refusing, unless they have a blanket gag order that would ensure that none of the information in the depositions is made public. Kind of makes you wonder what they're hiding. Speaking of hiding, with the RIAA dropping plenty of cases where they realize they may actually lose the case (usually, because they sued the wrong person), a whole bunch of legal groups joined together to file a statement supporting the idea that the RIAA should be responsible for paying the legal fees of the person they falsely brought to court. It seems only fair.
