The Recording Industry Association of America is getting soft. RIAA spokesman Jonathan Lamy announced that they will drop their lawsuit against a woman who died last month at the age of 83 and didn't own a computer.
A group of record companies named Walton as the sole defendant in a federal lawsuit, claiming she made more than 700 songs available for free on the Internet.Link (Thanks, Henry!)
Walton's daughter, Robin Chianumba, lived with her mother for the last 17 years and said her mother objected to having a computer in the house.
"My mother wouldn't know how to turn on a computer," Chianumba said.
