RIAA, just leave your consumers alone!

Wired writes about another case of bullying on behalf of the RIAA, the recording industry’s answer to the failure of their market to adapt.  This summer there was another court case that was dismissed due to lack of evidence.  The RIAA is trying to dodge paying legal fees of 42 year old Tanya Andersen.

The RIAA dropped the case this summer against Andersen, months after concluding her hard drive didn’t contain any purloined music tracks. The RIAA sued her two years ago, alleging a Kazaa shared directory that linked to her internet-protocol address was unlawfully distributing thousands of songs — a case Andersen’s lawyers decried as “frivolous.”
