EMI to fund anti-RIAA defense case

A further setback for the music industry's plans to sue everyone: it's just got a lot more expensive. A court has directed Capitol Records to pick up a portion of the costs Debbie Foster incurred proving their attempts to sue her for "illegal" file-sharing. It's the first time the RIAA has been forced to pay costs when one of their shaky cases has been pulled down; the precedent of both the defeat and the costs award might make them think again.

But then again, the RIAA have never done the sensible thing, have they?
