Legal We always try to avoid politics like the plague here on OSNews, but sometimes, it's hard to avoid it. Take the case of Joel Tenenbaum, who could be liable for over 1 million USD if the Recording Industry Association of America gets its way. While many hoped for a change of pace when it comes to these matters, Barack Obama's Department of Justice has squarely sided with the RIAA.

1 million USD in damages? Yeah, like a 16 year old could buy 1 million USD worth of music. And yet, some clowns are actually trying to justify this!

How is "Let's completely ruin this kids life to scare the millions of people we didn't catch" a morally sound strategy? Like somebody in "Steal this movie" said this is like putting the heads of a few culprits on spears on the city wall in medieval times.
