One of the main lawyers stopping the MafiAA's illegal tactics has been Ray Beckerman, and he's now being targeted with SLAPP lawsuits by their corrupt attorneys.

Ray also runs the famous RIAA vs the People blog.

Lory Lybeck, a Washington state defense attorney leading a proposed class-action lawsuit accusing the RIAA of allegedly engaging in "sham" litigation tactics, said the RIAA's motion comes from the same organization that has sued about 30,000 people over the last five years for file sharing, some of them falsely. It's the same organization, he said, that has sued dead people, the elderly and even children -- all while using unlicensed investigators.
Small point of order to Wired: using unlicensed investigators is illegal in many of the states the MafiAA operates in.
