This brings a smile. Anyone who files dumb lawsuits and loses ought to pay the attorney’s fees. Especially the RIAA. They are so thoroughly unlikeable that I hardly care what happens to them at this point.
They lost any feeling I might have had for them when they sued that 14 year old girl.
Now if other people can do it to the Recording Industry it would make my day
