p2pnet news | RIAA News:- The pressure continues to build against Warner Music, EMI, Vivendi Universal and Sony BMG and their RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America).
Thanks wholly to the RIAA’s bitter and ongoing persecution of Big 4 customers, the world media are waking up to the fact all is not as it should be in the corporate music industry.
Universities across America are refusing to help their own students against ongoing attacks by the corporate music industry.
So now seven students have taken things into their own hands, setting the pace for what could become a major disaster for the organise music cartel.
The students are among the estimated 30,000 US victims of the bizarre sue ‘em all marketing campaign under which the Big 4 are using legal systems around the world to try and force people into becoming compliant consumers of corporate music ‘product’.
By teaming up, students can, “pool their limited financial resources,” writes Ray Beckerman on Recording Industry vs The People.
“Large groups of students pooling their resources will be the RIAA’s worst nightmare,” he says, going on:
Seven (7) North Carolina State University students named as “John Does” have joined together, in LaFace v. Does 1-38, in Raleigh, North Carolina, to make a motion to vacate the ex parte discovery order that was entered without their knowledge, to quash the subpoena served pursuant to that order, and to dismiss the case altogether due to improper joinder.
This is the fifth such motion of which we are aware, but the first in which such a large group of students joined together to fight the RIAA.
All seven students are represented by Robertson, Medlin & Blocker, in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Will other students follow this example?
