AMERICA'S TOP JUDGES have been briefed on the antics of the Recording Industry Association of America.
New York attorney Ray Beckerman has written a paper for the American Bar Association's Judge's Journal's bumper summer issue.
Beckerman, who defends people sued by the MAFIAA, told judges about the finer points of case law relating to the wave of P2P cases.
Called Large Recording Companies v The Defenseless, the article explains RIAA lawyers' method of working, which he thinks are getting dodgier as time wears on.
The bulk of the article looks at legal matters concerning venue, jurisdiction, dismissal, discovery, confidentiality, legal fees and default judgments.
One of the central issues which judges have faced in deciding on P2P cases are the huge amounts of case law and a lack of knowledge of the technical problems.
If the robed but not wigged ones read the missive they are certainly going to get a perspective that the music industry would not like. µ
