One small victory, especially for Mac users

Just about three weeks ago, Sarah Ward, 65-year-old educator, artist, and grandmother, received notice that she was getting sued by the RIAA. Well, apparently, the RIAA came to their senses and dropped the suit. Why, you ask? The seven record labels sued Ward solely on the basis of "screen shots" from the KaZaA network and information obtained from a controversial subpoena issued to Comcast, Ward's Internet service provider, under the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

Here's the thing: Ward doesn't use KaZaA. She's never heard of it. Why? Ken will appreciate this: She doesn't even own a PC, she uses a Mac, and KaZaA isn't available on Macs.

Moral of this story: Avoiding lawsuits by paying for an overpriced Mac may very well be worth it.
