RIAA Gone MAD !!!! RIAA Sues Deceased Grandmother .
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 2/05/2005 12:13:00 PM.

This is too funny !!!!

In a lawsuit filed in January, the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) accused 83-year old Gertrude Walton of sharing over 700 pop, rock and rap songs under the alias "smittenedkitten."

What the RIAA didn't know is that Walton had passed away in December following a long illness. Her daughter, Robin Chianumba, has lived with Walton for the past 17 years and told the that her mother refused to even have a computer in the house.

The Recording Industry Association of America admitted that Walton was likely not the smittenedkitten it was after, blaming the mixup on the time it takes gather information on illicit file swappers.

This is nothing new .... In 2003 the RIAA sued a twelve year old girl for copyright infringement. She'd harbored an MP3 file of her favorite TV show on her hard drive. Her working class parents in a housing project in New York were forced to pay two thousand dollars in a settlement.
