The RIAA is apparently having an allergic reaction
to the request by the State Attorney General of Oregon
for information about the RIAA's investigative tactics, in Arista v. Does 1-17
, the Portland, Oregon, case targeting students at the University of Oregon. See The Oregonian, December 1, 2007
("UO suspects music industry of spying") and p2pnet, November 29, 2007
("RIAA may be spying on students: Oregon AG"). Not only are the record companies opposing the request
(pdf), they're asking the Judge not to even read it
