RIAA fails to pay defendant lawyer fees

By on
The Recording Industry Association of America is always willing to attack people at the slightest hint of copyright infringement, but after getting fed up with their bullying, some people have started to fight back.

That was the case of Capitol v. Foster, where the RIAA was ordered to pay $68,585.23 in attorney fees and costs after unsuccessfully suing over copyright infringement. However, a month after the judge’s ruling, Debbie Foster hasn't heard back from the RIAA, much less received any money. Foster has now filed a motion of judgment against RIAA, so that she can immediately receive post-judgment collection proceedings.

It’s funny how RIAA hounds people relentlessly, but when the tables are turned, they fail to come up with the money they owe and will probably avoid paying until they are compelled under threat of penalty to do so.
