RIAA has to pay legal fees of person they accused

C|net news reports that the RIAA has been ordered to pay nearly $70000 in legal fees to somebody who they accused of vicariously aiding copyright infringement.

It's taken a while, but it does feel like the tide is turning. Initially, the RIAA and friends could accuse whoever they wanted, produce some highly dubious "evidence" and walk away with thousands of dollars. More recently, they've had to actually produce real evidence (although they often seem to drop the case if it gets to that point). Now they're actually suffering financially if they wrongfully accuse somebody. It's slow progress, but progress nevertheless.

Of course in Canada, the CRIA were told that they needed to produce some kind of evidence before they could actually sue somebody, at which point they decided that it was better/cheaper to try to get the law changed first/instead.
