Girl vs. RIAA uses "Innocent infringement defense"

vbimport

#1

At the age of 16 a girl uses Kazaa, RIAA goes after her. She admits that she was using p2p but says she didn’t know it was wrong at the time.

the court says to RIAA that it needs to prove she knew what she was doing was wrong.

This can mean the difference between $200 fine or $15,000 fine PER SONG!

This was also this case in MN of this lady being fined 250,000 to pay the RIAA. But a recent court review tossed the case…

What is the point when the same tunes can be recorded from the radio?

IMO the RIAA will not win Vs kids under 21 and adults over 60.

They just want to scare some, like going after draft doggers in the 60s.
