There's a new lawsuit in California that alleges that the RIAA amnesty program is "unlawful, unfair and deceptive."
Anyone have a link to the complaint?
This is a nice start, because it seems to call bullshit on whether RIAA would ever have standing to bring a lawsuit, and therefore whether its offer to absolve you file-sharing scofflaws is worth anything. Kind of like paying "Joey the Lip" protection money, and then finding it's his cousin Lefty who can and actually will break your knees.
Ira Rothken, the attorney who filed the suit, seems to have represented MP3Board in an earlier tussle with RIAA.
It's a nice start, but a far cry from the groundswell of litigation and outrage it will take to make RIAA stop. Federal statutes are really good for that sort of thing.
