Judge orders RIAA to pay $68,685.23 in legal fees

Debbie Foster's battle with the RIAA appears to be finally over. Today, a federal judge in Oklahoma closed the book on Capitol v. Foster by awarding her $68,685.23 in attorneys' fees, a ruling first reported by Ray Beckerman's blog.

Foster was sued by the RIAA in November 2004 for copyright infringement. She denied infringement and began a legal fight against the music industry. In July 2005, the labels added her adult daughter Amanda Foster to the suit. Instead of dropping the action against Debbie Foster, the record labels continued to press claims of secondary copyright infringement, saying that she was liable for infringement since the ISP account allegedly used for sharing music was in her name.

It was proven that she wasn't a pirate. She has a history of buying CDs online and none of those were of "violent music" that RIAA accused her of pirating, plus she offered to have her computer checked which RIAA refused.

Can I ask how the hell do they catch these people and how they can identify someone as a 'pirate' do they randomly choose people or something to try and scare the nation.

Well I don't know how other organizations do it, but the RIAA pick random people and sue them. They once tried to sue a person that was dead, and some people who didn't even have computers or an internet connection.

Hah, sounds like the kinda of system that our legal system would allow...

I wish things were simple enough to just "change" with a simple revolution of ideas, but though, sadly, those days are long gone. There are very few paths left to wear down, and only one of them leads to the goal that I believe we need to seek. Let us just hope, though, that it never comes to that.
