Now I've Heard It All

You may recall that, a year or so ago, the music industry sued a grandfather here in the Metroplex over file-sharing offenses that it turned out he didn't even commit (his visiting grandkids turned out to be the culprits). Well, now they've gone and sued an 83-year-old woman for the same thing. However, they'll have trouble getting her to show up in court, seeing as how she died in December.

Key quote: ""I believe that if music companies are going to set examples they need to do it to appropriate people and not dead people," [the woman's daughter] said. "I am pretty sure she is not going to leave Greenwood Memorial Park (where she is buried) to attend the hearing."

Read the whole thing. (via InstaPundit)
