I THINK SHE JUST MIGHT HAVE A CASE:
A New Jersey woman, one of the hundreds of people accused of copyright infringement by the Recording Industry Association of America, has countersued the big record labels, charging them with extortion and violations of the federal antiracketeering act.
I think they're vulnerable on a variety of legal fronts, not just this one.
UPDATE: Sorry, I was imprecise above. I meant that I think they're more vulnerable on other fronts -- also under RICO -- than this one.
