Submission + - Teen accuses RIAA of fraud, collusion

PCM2 writes: "The Associated Press is reporting that Robert Santangelo, a 16-year-old who has been sued by the RIAA for file sharing and piracy, has raised 32 defenses to the organization's claims, including that 'the record companies, which have filed more than 18,000 piracy lawsuits in federal courts, "have engaged in a wide-ranging conspiracy to defraud the courts of the United States."' The documents go on to suggest that the music industry is "a cartel" and is in violation of U.S. anti-trust laws. Santangelo has also filed a counter-claim against the RIAA for defamation and legal fees."
