It seems like the RIAA is increasingly having to tuck its tail between its legs and run and hide, as more of the people they're suing are fighting back (and winning). While some have succeeded in getting the RIAA to pay their legal fees, the RIAA is still fighting against that. In one case, the recording industry lawyers are now promising to a judge that they absolutely won't sue a woman again on the same claim, so long as they don't have to pay her legal fees for wrongly suing her in the first place. It's not clear what kind of bargain that is, or why a judge should go for it. If they made a mistake in suing the woman, they should pay her legal fees and promise not to sue her again on the same claim.
