RIAA SORT-OF-VICTORY IN COURT: A judge - actually, New York based Denny Chin - has told Cablevision they must reveal the identities of alleged file-sharers to the trade body to allow them to sue. However, Civil Liberties Union attorney Aden Fine points out that the judgement doesn't quite give the RIAA everything it hoped for:

"It's not a victory or a defeat. The important part of the opinion is that it emphasizes that accusations saying an individual is engaged in illegal speech don't mean the First Amendment provides no protections."
