RIAA More Powerful Than Police

| | |

DMusic mentions Dave Ralis' editorial for PhillyBurbs.com. He explains why the record industry is now more powerful than police:

Under the fourth amendment to Constitution, police must show probable cause that a crime has been committed before they can get a judge's permission to search your home for evidence, or subpoena you to appear in court. But under the federal Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), all the RIAA has to do is file paperwork with a court clerk to get a subpoena if it suspects you of downloading a song from the Internet or sharing music in a peer-to-peer network such as Kazaa, WinMX or Grokster. Anyone found in violation of the act could faces a lawsuit from the RIAA seeking $750 to $150,000 per song, The Associated Press has reported.
