RIAA Sues Woman Who Has No Computer For Sharing Music

from the did-she-hum-too-loudly? dept

It certainly wouldn't be the first time something like this has happened, but the lawyers who are fighting the RIAA on behalf of one woman, say they've heard about another lawsuit (unfortunately, they don't provide any links to info about the lawsuit) on behalf of a woman who says she didn't even own a working computer at the time the RIAA claims she was a threat to the industry. Perhaps she was singing so loudly her neighbors could hear her.

    Re: David Byrne got a RIAA notice, too

    Not in the article TD posted, no. I thought it was related enough to post in the comment thread.

    I guess from RIAA's perspective, a music luminary and a non-PC owning mom are the same class of criminal.
