THE RECORDING Industry of America Association (RIAA) is trying a new legal dance in its p2p case against Paul Wilke.
Wilke has told the RIAA to go forth and multiply over its claims that he pirated a selection of music. He has said some of the music that the RIAA claims he downloaded he didnâ€™t, and other titles he has on his hard-drive he had purchased as legal CDs. In fact he has not even downloaded any media distribution system on his computer.
He is asking for the court to throw out the case because he says that the RIAA has no evidence.
The RIAA agrees that it does not have enough evidence, but has now formally asked to court to have more time to get it. It told the court that lots of people thought they were innocent, until the RIAA proved that they werenâ€™t.

Should the judge even allow the RIAA to go on a rather blatant fishing expedition to try and find evidence?
