In the past, we've heard about lawsuits in Oregon against the RIAA claiming that its investigation techniques were illegal, but now it appears that idea is spreading. A NY court is now reviewing a request to toss out evidence compiled via questionable means in a lawsuit filed by an RIAA label against someone for sharing unauthorized files. The defendant claims that the RIAA used Media Sentry, who broke the law by not having an investigator's license in New York. Frankly, the idea that you need an investigator's license is pretty silly as well, but it does highlight how the RIAA isn't exactly known for playing by the rules either.
