RIAA Wins Again


A U.S. district court judge just ruled that Verizon must cough up the names of file swapping customers to the Recording Industry Association of America. The court sided with the RIAA's reading of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which allows copyright holders to issue subpoenas without the bother of providing any evidence that a crime has taken place.

When the 101st Airborne is done in Iraq, how 'bout they saunter back and reclaim some freedoms for the home folk? All it'll take is menacing glares and a few atomic wedgies and RIAA lawyers will fold like so many Republican Guard divisions.
