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.
