+ - Teen sues record industry

Submitted by

geobeck writes "Sixteen-year-old Robert Santangelo, who was sued for file sharing when he was eleven, is fighting back. His suit claims that the recording industry has "engaged in a wide-ranging conspiracy to defraud the courts of the United States", and accuses them of antitrust violations and extortion.

Robert is not the first Santangelo to be sued. In 2005, the recording industry sued his mother Patti, but dropped the charges when it became apparent that she didn't even know how to turn on a computer. His sister Michelle, now 20, is on the hook for $30k in summary judgment charges because she did not respond to a similar suit filed against her."

No amount of careful planning will ever replace dumb luck.
