Public Knowledge: "We have some very good news. The 108th Congress has ended, and Public Knowledge and its allies came out on top. The MPAA and RIAA pressured Congress for laws that would have undermined your rights, hurt the economy, and stifled creative freedom. We stopped every single one."
Christoper Null of MobilePC: "In the last 12 months, the RIAA lost a landmark suit against Grokster (essentially legalizing peer-to-peer software), lost a suit to Verizon (holding that it did not have to provide names of its subscribers who the RIAA wanted to sue), and has yet to actually win against any of the thousands of individuals it has sued in court (some of the cases have been settled out of court, most are still pending)."
