Wow, RIAA so when will you start trying to sue fetuses.
What possible questions could you ask a 10 year old about something that happened when she was 7.

so linda did your mother play you any illegal music when you when you were at home?

While this sort of suit brings out mostly anger, it should also bring about a sense of hope, for these cases will eventually cease. The comments left on the articles site, or other blogs across the web only make up a small portion of people who will eventually be exposed to the wrongdoings of the RIAA. Once the RIAA's PR image turns from protector of the bands and their music to the villein who sues little girls for their college funds, walls will begin to fall, and the RIAA will be fucked. :twisted:

hope she wins as she has
countersued the RIAA for Oregon RICO violations, fraud, invasion of privacy, abuse of process, electronic trespass, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, negligent misrepresentation, the tort of "outrage", and deceptive business practices.

I cannot believe that any judge would allow this case or this
deposition to go forward. If so, then there is something seriously
wrong with our legal system.

You can't even be tried for murder if your 12yrs old or under in the U.S. Seriously a 7 yr old getting sued wouldn't cause long term damage? Can the 7yr old even type well yet?

I'll say it loud and proud.

DAMN YOU RIAA!

katol - that's not true. there was a case in michigan where an 11 year old was tried, convicted, and sentenced for murder. he was just recently released, i believe because he had turned 21.

MrFredPFL. Do you have the case # for that?

I believe he was sentenced to a juvenile holding, since he was released on his 21 birthday. By law you can hold a juvi up to their 21st birthday by then, they must be released or transfered to an adult facility...

At least that's my understanding.

Wow - makes me angry!!!

On the bright side did you see the recent news about the 20% drop in CD sales?

I will never buy anything from the people behind this.

I also don't allow my teenage kids to buy anything - I teach them safe P2P.

no, katol, i don't have a case number. my point is that an 11 year old was tried for and convicted of murder. there is nothing i am aware of in the law prohibiting this for anyone 12 and under - if there were, this would not have happened - and yet it certainly did.

Actually you can trial someone as an adult but have to get permission or a case to go to a judge to see if they can trial someone under 12 for murder or if the child has an adult nature or seems more mature or knew what he was doing.

But this isnt about a child murdering someone, or indeed a child commiting any crime. Its a civil action they are going after them for, which is totally different to murder, despite what RIAA press releases would have you believe.

A new low? Actually not at all.
My favorite part is that some people are suprised the RIAA would take this sort of action.

McDonalds sued actress Sara Michelle Gellar over a TV commercial she made for Burger King at the age of 4. She was 5 years old when the case was finally settled.
