Court overturns RIAA mother-child case

Good news, via The Inquirer:

THE RECORDING Industry Association of America (RIAA) has lost a key case where it attempted to sue a mother over her 13-year old child's file sharing abilities.

According to CD Freaks, the case was overturned in a federal court in Michigan with prejudice. That means the RIAA case is lost.

The RIAA was forced to withdraw its case because it held the mother couldn't be held to be liable for letting her daughter share music online.

The case was brought by Priority Records on behalf of Elektra Motowwn Records, Warner Bros, Sony Music, UMG Recordings and Arista.
