NewYorkCountryLawyer writes: In a rare outburst of subjectivity, I commenced my blog post 'Ha ha ha ha ha' when reporting that, based upon the RIAA's disclosure form for 2008, it had paid its lawyers more than $16,000,000 to recover $391,000. If they were doing it to 'send a message', the messages have been received loud & clear: (1) the big 4 record labels are managed by idiots, (2) the RIAA's law firms have as much compassion for their client as they do for the lawsuit victims, (3) suing endusers, or alleged endusers, is a losing game. I don't know why p2pnet.net begrudges the RIAA's boss his big compensation; he did a good job.... for the lawyers.
