    RIAA Related -- Don't want to Spoil it.

    Hey Hey,

    You aren't going to believe this -- http://recordingindustryvspeople.blo...efendants.html

    In Michigan, in Warner Bros. v. Scantlebury, after learning that the defendant had passed away, the RIAA made a motion to stay the case for 60 days in order to allow the family time to "grieve", after which time they want to start taking depositions of the late Mr. Scantlebury's children:

    Yet another entertainment company/personality I will boycott. Pretty soon I won't bother with anything from Hollywood.

    Pathetic, whichever lawyer on their side who actually agreed to those terms and went forth with them needs to be shot/stabbed/hung all at the same time of being castrated..

    I reference an older story in way of reply -

    RIAA drops P2P case against dead non-computer user

    The Recording Industry Association of America is getting soft. RIAA spokesman Jonathan Lamy announced that they will drop their lawsuit against a woman who died last month at the age of 83 and didn't own a computer.

    A group of record companies named Walton as the sole defendant in a federal lawsuit, claiming she made more than 700 songs available for free on the Internet.
    Walton's daughter, Robin Chianumba, lived with her mother for the last 17 years and said her mother objected to having a computer in the house.

    "My mother wouldn't know how to turn on a computer," Chianumba said.
