RIAA to Court: That Bad Old Attorney Was Mean to Us!!!

How does the RIAA react to an attorney who defends people it charges and defeats it? And then has the gall to publish parts of the PUBLIC court file on his blog?

Why it sues him, of course. He's "vexatious."

In other words, he won and has made the RIAA look bad (like it needed any help).

You've got to be kidding me. Admittedly, I don't know all that much about federal civil procedure, but if I remember back to law school, aren't cases filed in bad faith supposed to be sanctionable? Couldn't an attorney filing a case in bad faith also end up with an ethics violation at his State Bar?

BTW, the attorney being sued is Ray Beckerman and his blog is "Recording Industry vs. The People."
