p2pnet news | RIAA News:- It’s getting harder and harder for the multi-billion-dollar Big 4 record labels, Vivendi Universal, EMI, Warner Music and Sony BMG, and their RIAA, to maintain the illusion they’re being “devastated” by the likes of Marie Lindor, the elderly New York health aide they accused of being a massive online distributor of copyrighted music.
It’s Standard Operating Procedure for the Big 4 to first sic their RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) onto parents, knowing full well the mums and dads are completely innocent of any and all allegations of file sharing.
Then they turn on the kids, their real targets.
The RIAA has been bullying and harassing Marie Lindor for three years, finally dropping the case, instead lining up on Lindor’s daughter, Yannick Raymond-Wright, as per the SOP.
Richard Gabriel, a Holmes Owen and Bird attack lawyer, used to be in the lead, terrorising innocent American men, women and even children, on behalf of the labels.
She’s listed as “supervising attorney for the Recording Industry Association of America”.
“Having made Marie Lindor’s life utterly miserable by falsely accusing her of illegally distributing copyrighted music, the RIAA now wants a voluntary dismissal without prejudice, says her lawyer, Ray Beckerman,” p2pnet posted yesterday.
Burton has drawn up a whole litany of fresh allegations centring on Raymond-Wright and computer she’s said to have used.
But, “that computer has now been destroyed and the evidence is gone, and Plaintiffs’ ability to prove their case has been severely and irreparably prejudiced,” claims Burton in a court document, also declaring >>>
Plaintiffs, therefore, now seek to dismiss this case, without prejudice and to file a motion to sanctions against Defendant and her counsel for discovery abuse.
Plaintiffs had expended enormous time and effort to try to find the computer at issue, while Defendant and her family have concealed evidence and denied responsibility in the face of irrefutable evidence of infringement over Defendant’s Internet account.”
Burton winds up by demanding the case be stayed until her motion has been upheld, or thrown out.
“It never ceases to amaze me the things these people will attempt to say to a judge with a straight face,” says Lindor’s lawyer, Ray Beckerman, who also runs Recording Industry vs The People which archives numerous other examples of equally egregious RIAA cases, and documents pertaining to them.
“This has got to be the most ludicrous thing I have ever seen from these attorneys, and I have seen many, many ludicrous things from these attorneys on a daily basis,” he states.
