Capital v Foster

EFF et al's Brief of Amicus Curiae in Support of Defendant Debbie Foster's Motion For Attorney's Fees


The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) sued Deborah Foster in November of 2004, accusing her of illegally downloading copyrighted material. Foster denied the allegations and fought back in court, and the case was dismissed.

On August 10, 2006, EFF along with the American Association of Law Libraries, the ACLU, and Public Citizen, filed this brief with the Oklahoma district court, urging a judge to award the innocent target of a file-sharing lawsuit the cost of her attorney's fees in battling the allegations of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The defendant was awarded attorney’s fees.
