When the RIAA went to court for summary judgment they were shocked to find that the judge did not agree with them.
This is in the case of Atlantic v. Brennan.
I’m not surprised really particularly after they had the wrong name on the docket only correcting it three days before they tried for the home run.

If this is not overturned perhaps they have had their wings clipped at last.
Judge Arterton’s properly researched and well reasoned judgment has also highlighted and closed other ways for the RIAA to abuse the process in order to frighten us all.
