WHAT NOT TO DO IF YOU'RE SUED BY THE RIAA

Faced with the prospect of being dragged to court by the RIAA, a defendant accused of using iMesh appears to have wiped their harddrive, leading to the court entering a default judgement against them - a judgement which could run into the hundreds of thousands.

The woman, Ms Tschirhart, had used a disk-erase utility after getting a letter from the RIAA requesting a look at her hard drive; the court has decided this was wilfull destruction of evidence and has granted Arista whatever it wants.

If the RIAA comes knocking, you're better off getting in touch with people who know about the law rather than your mate with a couple of knock-off copies of Norton.
