Apparently, it's not enough to assert that all mp3 players are nothing by repositories of stolen music:
“Each of these devices is used to store unpaid-for material. This way, on top of the material people do pay for, the record companies are getting paid on the devices storing the copied music.”
Oh, no. Apparently, the entire internet is nothing but a massive instance of copyright infringement:
Now, there's a case called Electro vs. Barker which has become very important. This is a nursing student who was sued in her name. We made a motion to dismiss the complaint because doesn't specify any acts or dates or times of copyright infringement as the law normally requires. We've made several arguments like that before this motion and the RIAA put in an argument which basically fudged it. However, in this case they basically decided to go for the gold and they made a bold argument claiming that merely making files available on the internet is in and of itself a copyright infringement. It was a shocking argument because if it were accepted it would probably shut down the entire internet.
So here's my question - how do the MPAA and RIAA clowns manage to walk upright, given the rectal-cranial inversion they all clearly suffer from?
