RIAA Dirty Tricks: Gathering Private Info On Kids Of Accused File Sharer


The RIAA’s latest tactic, is to reveal to Santangelo and her new lawyer that they’ve been investigating her children, and have been able to collect a lot of non-public information. The RIAA will probably claim that the info is related to the case, but it certainly borders on using scare tactics, and trying to intimidate Santangelo into backing down.

The Big Four record labels are escalating their attack on Patti Santangelo, the New York mother who’s so far the only person to stand up to them.

And they’ll be using her children as weapons against her.

On Tuesday judge Mark D. Fox presided over a discovery hearing in Elektra v Santangelo and, “Elektra’s attorneys have answered Patti’s objections to their discovery questions,” her lawyer, Jordan Glass, told p2pnet.

“They’ve started to push back aggressively. They’re going after her children – and this time not directly so they can get around certain protections the children have. They had information about the children that wasn’t public, or wasn’t supposed to be public, and it’s of great concern not only that that they were able to obtain it, but also that they wanted it.

“They’re not treating this as a single case or as seeking a verdict for $3,500.00. They’re treating this as a symbol for how the other cases will go and I hope everyone who reads this will recognize the serious impact this case could have on their children.”

The RIAA has spent enough to feed a small country on trying to make the world believe it’s owners, the multi-billion-dollar Big Four labels, are being “devastated” (their word) by people who share music online, that contracted artists are suffering and that support workers are being driven into extreme financial hardship.

They make the completely unsupportable assertion that people using the p2p networks to share files would otherwise have paid $1 or more to buy the song from an online corporate music site or an offline music store.
