Submission + - EFF backs RIAA victim Jeffrey Howell in MP3 case

newtley writes: "Another "intriguing event has unfolded in the extraordinary drama playing out in Phoenix, Arizona, Atlantic v Howell," says Recording Industry vs The People. This is the case where the RIAA claims part-time taxi driver Jeffrey Howell, forced to represent himself because he can't afford a lawyer, infringed copyrights by loading MP3s he'd made from CDs bought legally onto his PC. Now, on literally the last day allowed for filing supplemental briefs, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has come out swinging on Howell's behalf, arguing strenuously against the RIAA motion for summary judgment."
