In what must be a prize pain in the rear for RIAA, a Chicago judge was asked to issue a summary judgement in favour of Paul Wilkes in the Elektra v Wilkes case.

RIAA were prosecuting Mr Wilkes for copywright infringement, Mr Wilkes though was able to prove convincingly that he had never participated in any File Sharing activities, and that all of the music on his computer was legally purchased. As a consequence RIAA was forced to withdraw their case.

The full story can be found here.

It is becoming clear that RIAA’s position is not quite as stong as they would like. Maybe if more people adopted Mr Wilkes’ approach RIAA would think twice about issuing all of these law suits.
