I am sure we all have heard of the RIAA, if not they are the Recording Industry Association of America. They are currently sueing or trying to sue
almost everyone in America for downloading illegal music. To date there are about 13,000 cases tied up in court system cause of this.
So far we have had 1 other case kinda like this where they were sued for racketeering, from my knowledge nothing was accomplished.
The lady in this case is claiming that she had no idea that anything wrong was going on with her computer, so she is fighting back on legitimate
claims of hacking, fraud, invasion of privacy, and so on.
A WOMAN who was sued by the Recording Industry of America for file-sharing has countersued the outfit for hacking.
Tanya Andersen, a 41-year old disabled single mother living in Oregon, has countersued the RIAA for Oregon RICO violations, fraud, invasion of
privacy, abuse of process, electronic trespass, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, negligent misrepresentation. She is claiming hurt
feelings and "outrage", and deceptive business practices.

I dont know what anyone elses stance is on this type if thing. But I am not in for this at all. I agree downloading music without paying for is.....
I cant finish that because I downloaded music a while ago in the napster age and bought music I downloaded. They are using deceptive practices to get
infomation needed. I would like to see how this fans out in court.
