RIAA Really Does Not Want Live Broadcast Of Hearing In Tenenbaum Case
from the what-are-you-afraid-of? dept
It seems the RIAA is, once again, showing its true colors. When Charlie Nesson asked the court in the Tenebaum case to allow a live internet broadcast of a hearing to dismiss the case, the RIAA protested. This was odd, on its face, since the RIAA has insisted from the beginning that the reason for the campaign is educational. That was the point made by Judge Gertner in granting the request — and she even pointed out how odd it was that the RIAA didn’t want that to happen.
It turns out that the RIAA is so against the idea that it’s gone and asked an appeals court to overturn the ruling, which even has entertainment industry lawyers who support the lawsuit strategy questioning the RIAA’s move here. Of course, it’s not surprising to find out that the RIAA has been misleading (at best) about its intentions with these lawsuits, but it is rather amusing at how hard they’re fighting this, even knowing how it shows their hypocrisy.
