2pnet.net News:- Marie Lindor, the Brooklyn mother and home health aide who admits she doesn’t know one end of a computer from the other, is wondering how the Big Four Organized Music family’s RIAA thinks it can cite as evidence in a court case something it hasn’t actually produced.
The RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) is owned and operated by EMI (Britain), Vivendi Universal (France) and Sony BMG (Japan and Germany), with Warner Music as the only US company, and it’s trying to paint a picture of Lindor as a wicked file sharer among the multitudes of Big Four customers who are, claim the gang, “devastating” them and causing all kinds of terrible misfortunes to their empolyees and contracted artists.
That is, of course, arrant nonsense, but it doesn’t stop the mainstream media from parroting it as though it’s hard fact any more than it stops the multi-billion-dollar Big Four from reporting mind-boggling revenues at the same time they’re proclaiming they’re being ruined.
Meanwhile, in what’s rapidly developing into a saga, Lindor lawyer Ty Rogers wants a court to rule the RIAA can’t introduce into the case songs it’s failed to produce.
“Ms. Lindor’s lawyers submitted to the Court the RIAA’s interrogatory responses where the record companies had stated under oath that their case was based upon (a) Media Sentry’s detection of song files being ‘distributed’ and (b) Media Sentry’s allegedly making ‘perfect digital copies’ of those files,” says Ray Beckerman on Recording Industry vs The People, and going on:
“Ms. Lindor’s attorneys argued that the RIAA cannot prove that it made perfect digital copies of the songs if it doesn’t have the song files.”
And when we said it was becoming a saga, we weren’t exaggerating.
There’s a fascinatig dialogue dedicated to the Lindor case.
So stay tuned.
