U.S. court nixes Net music subpoenas (http://www.cnn.com/2003/LAW/12/19/music.download.reut/index.html)
In a surprise setback for the recording industry, a U.S. appeals court said Friday its methods for tracking down those who copy its music over the Internet are not authorized by law.
I hope that those who supported this law would see why these RIAA tactics are wrong.
The tactics used by the RIAA are too extreme. You don't use a 10 pound hammer to kill ants.
And as these Columbia judges (http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=528&ncid=528&e=1&u=/ap/20031219/ap_on_en_mu/downloading_music) confirmed, the tactics are unlawful as well.
But the damage has been done. People lives has been destroyed by the RIAA.

im not too bothered by the whole issue with riaa sueing but I am pleased that they cant subpoena isp's for this stuff now...that could turn into dangerous precidents for others to do so for whatever they want.

Fortunately some judges still have some sense. At least this will slow down RIAA's career of evil :)
