    Hahaha... The RIAA are getting a taste of their own medicine. I hope they stop harassing people after this. Maybe they will increase the harassment. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

    I hope they win the suit, and take the RIAA for millions. Thats like a prolife person murdering an OB/GYN to express the sanctity of life. Damn, a copyright protection group violating copyright laws......LOL

    Why wouldn't they win? If they can prove that the RIAA used Kazaa lite, then the RIAA deserves a suit, it even says when you install KazaaLite that it's illegal.

    Not only are they being accused of using Kazaa Lite, but weren't they modifying it provide user data to the RIAA and delete files from individual machines?

    Doesn't that cross the lines to the "trojan" side of the equation? Shouldn't the FBI now get involved, or are they just interested in script kiddies they can intimidate.

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    i doubt the FBI will get involved. It's basically a "Corporate war" type thing. "You sued our users, so we are going to counter-sue you."

    I hope the RIAA goes down in flames, that was a dirty trick, but theyll get away with it because they were "fighting" piracy. lol
