RIAA countersuit - Racketeering?
Of the over 14,000 people that the RIAA have sued for uploading music, only a handful have defended them. The costs involved to defend are just too much for the average person to bear. Reports say that one woman has defended and counterclaimed on the basis of: Oregon RICO violations, fraud, invasion of privacy, abuse of process, electronic trespass, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, negligent misrepresentation, the tort of "outrage", and deceptive business practices
Some of that may be a stretch, but certainly no more than the hyperbole the RIAA spits out. (See my Sept 30 post.)
