Recording Industry vs. The People: A Blog About RIAA Lawsuits

Recording Industry vs. the People is a blog by Ty Rogers
and Ray Beckerman, NYC lawyers who, through the
Electronic Frontier Foundation, represent people who
have been sued by the RIAA (Recording Industry
Association of America) for having computers whose
Internet accounts were believed to have been used to
access peer-to-peer file sharing.

Rogers and Beckerman don't mince words on their
opinion of the RIAA lawsuits, saying:

A cartel of multinational corporations collude to
abuse our judicial system, distort copyright law,
and frighten ordinary working people and their
children. We established this site to collect and
share information about this campaign.
