The RIAA sues blogger for blogging

Man, the RIAA have really lost their tiny minds now:

“The Recording Industry Association of America is declaring attorney-blogger Ray Beckerman a “vexatious” litigator. The association is seeking unspecified monetary sanctions to punish him in his defense of a New York woman accused of making copyrighted music available on the Kazaa file sharing system.

“The RIAA said Beckerman, one of the nation’s few attorneys who defends accused file sharers, ‘has maintained an anti-recording industry blog during the course of this case and has consistently posted virtually every one of his baseless motions on his blog seeking to bolster his public relations campaign and embarrass plaintiffs,’ the RIAA wrote (.pdf) in court briefs. ‘Such vexatious conduct demeans the integrity of these judicial proceedings and warrants this imposition of sanctions.'”

Ray’s one of the good guys. But otherwise, words, they fail me. Except: fucking RIAA. Jerks.
