Score Another One For The Good Guys

Peer-to-Peer Developer Sues Record Companies:

Peer-to-peer file-sharing software developer Lime Wire has countersued the biggest record companies, charging them with anticompetitive behavior.
[...]

Lime Wire now charges the record companies with colluding to create a monopoly over the digital distribution of copyrighted music. The record companies 'have engaged in these unfair business practices for the specific purpose of eliminating sources of decentralized peer-to-peer file sharing and acquiring a monopoly over digital distribution of commercially valuable copyrighted music and movie content,' the lawsuit reads.
[...]
Cool. The greedy bastards at the RIAA need to be reigned in a little. I'm a-rootin' for Lime Wire on this one.

I do believe in the artists getting their fair cut of royalties, but artists have been getting shafted for eons by record companies. It's time they got a wake-up call.
