The RIAA has filed a file-sharing suit against a family in Rockmart, GA. The family doesn't own a computer.

Good to see a real standard of care in place over there at RIAA sue-your-customers HQ; this is probably more profitable in the long run than suing people who do share music, since those people are statistically more likely to spend money on CDs. Focusing on shaking down people who don't own PCs will keep the music industry from alienating its diehard fans.

Now, my question is, are they just choosing names out of a phone book now?

What dicks. I hate these people. I hope they lose all their hair and piraters TP their multi-million dollar mansions.

I wonder what their evidence is that the family has downloaded and shared copyrighted files despite the fact that they don't own a computer.

Phone Book?
Draw Straws?
Pick a name out of a hat?

Hmmm???

Master Sajin Takes a Guess

Perhaps one family member owned a laptop with a Dial-up modem and downloaded music...but even then....how did the RIAA find out??
