Magistrate judge suggests sanctions against RIAA lawyers

By Eric Bangeman | Published: January 30, 2008 - 11:11AM CT

The RIAA's habit of roping numerous unrelated defendants into a single "John Doe" lawsuit has drawn the attention of a federal magistrate—and not in a good way.

the record labels' arguments that defendants should be lumped together by virtue of having the same ISP and allegedly committing similar acts of copyright infringement are belied by the fact that the defendants are always sued individually once they are identified.
Didn't they get in trouble in Sweden for this same exact thing?

I think some legal mind is going to really clean them out one day soon for this kind of action...it amounts to a criminal conspiracy to use the law to do their bidding... imho...they are basically lying to the courts as to their intentions, thereby trying to use the courts for private gains...

in most places there is always one or two things you can rely upon really pissing a judge off...I'm pretty sure "using" the courts is always one of them...
