[FoxNews] Woman Accuses RIAA of Illegal Spying

post #1 of 52

Quote:
PORTLAND, Ore. — A woman who claims the recording industry's anti-music piracy campaign threatens and intimidates innocent people has filed a new complaint accusing record companies of racketeering, fraud and illegal spying.

Tanya Andersen originally sued the Recording Industry Association of America after RIAA representatives threatened to interrogate her young daughter if she didn't pay thousands of dollars for music she downloaded from somebody else.

Her amended complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Portland seeks national class-action status for other people allegedly victimized by the industry's anti-piracy campaign and the company it hired, MediaSentry.

They need to get owned..."You need to pay back every cent you have won from your cases in lump sums, plus taxes and the like, so that your victims get back what they have paid. Furthermore, you cannot operate in this manner anymore, all you are allowed to do is report any suspected piracy to the proper PD and let them handle it as the law allows. Have a nice day!"

The RIAA have really slumped a new low...

A 10 year old girl?

Plus, since when are a few MP3s worth thousands of dollars?

This is the parent's fault for not knowing what their child is doing on the internet. Howver, the child should get no more punishment the first time around than they would from actually stealing something (because that is what the kid did). A slap on the wrist or something like that, not necessarily a fine unless it would have been warranted had she actually stolen the CDs. Regardless, it was still wrong to do and it's the parent's responsibility to instill such values into their children. Children today are running wild with no sense of discipline because parents aren't doing their job, and this is another example.

As far as the woman's claim about the RIAA intimidating innocent people, that's bull. If you're innocent then you have nothing to worry about.

Note that I make no comments on other portions of the article at this time, so I should hope this time around words won't get put into my mouth that I didn't say. Those of you who steal and want to defend your (undefendable) point of view seem to have a tendency to do that...

I just feel that people who are no real threat to the music industry, such as myself, are targeted more-so than serial downloaders. I might get a few MP3 every month through sources I will not mention, however I use them as sample tracks to see if I genuinely want to buy the album.

There are people out there who distribute thousands of MP3s without getting fined by the RIAA, yet 10 year old girls get targeted. Wrong no?

its not the fact that she stole and got caught they are complaining about, its how they went about catching her.

The RIAA does not have the power of the Government. Even the Government is SUPPOSE to get a search warrant to hack/break in to someone's house/computer. What makes the RIAA so special that they can circumnavigate the law when the government isn't allowed to(but they do it anyway)?

Yes the RIAA should get sued for spying and searching without a warrant. Hell technically the RIAA isn't allowed a warrant to begin with since they aren't a government agency. So technically they just hacked a computer which is against the law to begin with. Only the Government\\FBI\\Police is\\are allowed search warrants. Not a company a bunch of lawyers that got together.

From the article:

Quote:
The complaint notes the case began when Andersen, a single mother, was sitting down for dinner with her then 8-year-old daughter at their home in August 2005 and a legal process server knocked on her door with notice of an RIAA lawsuit falsely alleging copyright infringement and demanding penalties.
They're using scare tactics to force people into settling regardless of weather or not they did anything.
