Score one for the little guy

The little guy is standing up against the RIAA with the help of some compassionate lawyers[recording...spot.com] (that is not an oxymoron) who are helping out the EFF[eff.org].

The goal here appears to knock out any legal basis for the RIAA's "John Doe" lawsuits. The RIAA is using 3 footings for the suits and the goal of the current effort is to deny all three, leaving the RIAA with little legal grounds to continue the current line of suits. I'm sure they will find some other way to bring these anonymous suits, but at least it will take them a while if this effort succeeds.

Also reported here[slashdot.org] with some good discussion.
