Hearing In RIAA Suit Delayed
December 16, 2008 at 6:12 AM (PT)
A case that is challenging the RIAA's ability to file suit against alleged file swappers has been postponed until JANUARY 6. CNET is reporting that U.S. Magistrate Judge LINCOLN ALMOND moved the hearing on whether defendant JOEL TENENBAUM's parents will have to turn their computer over to the RIAA's lawyers.
TENENBAUM has received support from HARVARD LAW SCHOOL Professor CHARLES NESSON and his students, who have advanced the theory that the copyright law the RIAA relies on is unconstitutional and have filed a countersuit against the RIAA.
