RollingStone: Downloader “Doe” Fights RIAA

“Her lawyer calls her Jane Doe. The music business calls her nycfashiongirl, which is her Kazaa screen name. She’s fighting to keep her real name a secret, becoming the first individual to take a stand against the recording industry’s latest attack on file traders.

In August, Jane Doe filed a legal challenge to block the Recording Industry Association of America from obtaining her identity, because it violates her right to privacy. Since June, the RIAA has run computer searches of hard drives in order to single out at least 1,075 people swapping songs on peer-to-peer services such as Kazaa. The RIAA then subpoenas the person’s Internet service provider to obtain his name and address so that he can potentially be sued for copyright infringement.”

Aye, Jane.  Godspeed, good woman.

The best defense is a good offense, aye?

Jane Doe,
Scary huh!? It’s still stealing, and it effects a lot more people than those with
( perceived ) deep me on this! I’m sure none of these college students want to spend countless hours preparing for a career just to be robbed point blank. It’s like that, it’s not some ephemeral product where no-one gets hurt.
It our livelihood.

Am I the only one here who thinks this women is a liar and trying to win sympathy by playing the role of “Martyr” with Invasion of Privacy?

She is nothing but a two bit, music thief. Give me a freaking break! She got caught with her hands in the cookie jar and now she is bitching about it. Fu*ck you thieving whore.

She knew what she was doing and now since she can’t find a legal way of finagling her way out of this, she is going to “fight” for her right.

Hope she gets fined more than anyone else.
