Also, if I was her attorney, (and she had a wireless internet connection and she was not the guilty party), on her behalf I would sue the wireless network provider for it’s liability. An argument could be made that they facilitated the law breaking by not restricting the range of their networks. Will the RIAA sue Starbucks because Starbucks customers may have downloaded music over their wireless networks? What liability do companies have that allow customers to use their networks and the customer violates the law? Any? It’s the same argument that PSP providers have used. And in law since a corporation has the same standing as a person, could you claim that there was not Equal Protection under the law for individuals if RIAA only goes after individuals and not the facilitators (corporations that provide wireless networks). That is, they (RIAA) were discriminatory in their lawsuits, in not sueing corporations and only individuals. Could a case be made that they were practicing discrimination. Discrimination is against Federal law. Or is that another kind of discrimination not covered by law?
