Seriously, are these guys above the law?

First the RIAA failed to hand over their attorney fees, after a judge issued subpoena (to see how much to award). Then they failed to pay the attorney fees after a judge ordered them too.

And the RIAA tries to preach about morality, when they don't even do what a JUDGE ORDERS them to do.

Its pretty much SOP for companies to stall on paying judgments or to even refuse to pay. Might does make right. They can always come up with excuses that they courts will accept (we mailed off a check, it got lost, it will take our bank 3 weeks to replace it, and repeat). Collection agencies go after little people, in order to go after something like that RIAA they are probably gonna want to claim 90% of the judgement for themselves because of the expense of fighting a company that is 100% lawyers.
