Judge Schell disagreed with the RIAA's reasoning, ordering the parties to find a neutral computer forensics expert who will look for evidence of infringement. Sony et al. will pay for the examination and will be able to suggest specific search methodologies to the forensics expert.
It's a small victory, but it could be a significant one if it serves as a precedent for other file-sharing litigation.
"The phonographic copyright in these performances is operated by Discipline Global Mobile on behalf of the artists, with whom it resides. Discipline accepts no reason for artists to give away such copyright interests in their work by virtue of a 'common practice' which is out of tune with the time, was always questionable and is now indefensible."
People in the record business had such a shake-out where they said, “It can’t be run by hippies anymore; but now we’re gonna get serious; we gonna have it run by lawyers.” And that’s exactly what happened. From the end of 1979 well into the mid 80s, every major record that came out was attached to a movie. And if it wasn’t, it was treated like a movie. Instead of selling a 100,000 records and everybody being happy, no one was happy unless it went into multiple millions.

Is in the hands of fools
