RIAA Admits They Accused Someone By Mistake... But They're Still Watching Her
from the whooooops dept
A little more evidence that the RIAA's subpoena-and-sue strategy has been a bit hasty. They've now admitted that one of the lawsuits they filed was a mistake (ooops, sorry about that) and there's no evidence the woman in question shared any music files. They've therefore dropped the lawsuit against the 66-year-old sculptor who doesn't even seem sure what file sharing software is - and is unlikely to have been sharing hardcore rap songs, as the RIAA contended in the lawsuit they filed against her. The RIAA's lawyers don't seem particularly apologetic about the mistake, saying: "Please note, however, that we will continue our review of the issues you raised and we reserve the right to refile the complaint against Mrs. Ward if and when circumstances warrant." How nice of them. Couldn't the RIAA now be accused of filing frivolous lawsuits?
