In Atlantic v. Howell, a case against a pro se litigant in Arizona, the Recording Institute Association of America has filed a supplemental brief in support of its motion for summary judgment. The Court has given defendants Pamela and Jeffrey Howell until January 11th to respond, and has scheduled a hearing for January 24th at 2:00 P.M.

The RIAA's brief contends- contradicting its lawyers' arguments at the Supreme Court in MGM v. Grokster, that making personal copies of songs from one's CD onto one's computer is an infringement.

Huh?

If you want to read the supplemental briefs, you can access a PDF of them here.

But don't say I didn't warn you that you might become very angry.

Can you deal with this type of anger this time of year? Or any time of year?
