Woman sues ISP for passing her details to RIAA

By Derek Sooman on
Dawnell Leadbetter from Seattle was none too pleased when her ISP allegedly contacted the RIAA about her sharing on music online. So irate is Leadbetter about the action she claims her ISP took, she is suing them. She claims that her ISP (Comcast) was not authorised to hand over her details to snoops from the RIAA, who have been looking around (as usual) for people's lives to ruin.

Leadbetter's lawyer says Comcast had no court authorisation to dish the dirt on her to a third party. "Comcast should respect the rights of privacy who pay them monthly bills," lawyer Lory Lybeck asserted.

Comcast is keeping schtumm on the move, while it seeks legal counsel.
