Excuse me while I puke!
RIAA sues hospitalized teen!
In another move that shows the RIAA has little respect for anything besides money, Pittsburgh news channel WTAE.com is reporting that Nineteen-year-old Ciara Sauro has been sued by the anti-piracy group for illegally sharing 10 songs.
Making the situation so awful is the fact that Sauro is hospitalized every week due to her pancreatitis and her need of an islet cell transplant. Her current accumulation of medical bills totals over $100,000.
WTAE says that “because she didn’t defend herself against a copyright lawsuit, a federal judge in Pittsburgh ruled she’s a music pirate, and that could cost the Sauros almost $8,000 in fines.”
Sauro herself paints a sad story. “I already have severe depression. I mean, it’s so hard to sit there and think that I have to get in trouble for something that I didn’t do. It’s not fair.”
Lisa Sauro, Ciara's mother adds: “You want to know the truth? I make $8.25 an hour. She can’t work. This child is very sick. I mean, what am I supposed to do?
“I just want them to know that I have to go through enough stress in my life with my sickness and my family, and I don’t think that they should go after people just because they want money for something that’s not even fair to us.”
RIAA, you have already sued dead women, 8-year old children, printers
and 90-year grandmothers, but this is truly disgusting. This girl could possibly die as a teenager, yet you are suing her over $10 USD worth of tracks that she did not even download; just let it go.
The important point is that she didn't download these songs...she just allowed a friend to borrow and play them!
Yet they've (the RIAA) done NOTHING to the McCain Campaign and Failin' Palin for copyright infringements of at least 6 artists legal possessions! And you don't believe in Satan Claus!
Also, I've been told the story was to be pulled. It wasn't to run on any other station nor to be in print material in this area. I'm checking to see if that's true. These people need rendered to one of Bush's friendly's!
