Oregon mom wins another round against record industry

Posted by Brier Dudley

Tanya Andersen finally won relief in her battle against the Recording Industry Association of America, according to a post by attorney Ray Beckerman, which was picked up by Ars Technica and others.

A federal judge in Oregon dismissed counterclaims by the RIAA and agreed that she should be paid attorney's fees. Ars said the decision also enables her to proceed with a class-action suit against the industry.

Andersen, a disabled single mother, fought back after being caught in a file-sharing sting, claiming that the industry used threats, intimidation and misrepresentation in its copyright investigations. Here's a Register story with her claim about the industry impersonating her 10-year-old's grandmother to get evidence.
