As I'm sure everyone wants to see these rediculous cases go away forever...
And I know EXACTLY how to do it.
while the RIAA has standing to bring the cases their policy of KEEPING the money that is due to the clients (musicians) they represent is what fuels these extortionist cases and is the flaw in the whole process.
So you get a court to rule that the RIAA, Record companies and the lawyers COMBINED can only keep 33% of any judgement award and the balance be promptly provided to the Artists that they allegedly represent
and the who legal fiction that they are "representing the artists" will unravel.
Remove the profit motive and it'll all just go away...
