RIAA Forced to Pay Tanya Anderson over $107,000

Tanya Anderson, who was sued by the RIAA, fought back and won her case. After dragging their feet and trying everything to avoid paying up, a judge has finally forced a payment of over US$107,000, according to P2Pnet.

The Oregon single mom and her daughter, Kylee, have become the poster child for families that have been sued by the RIAA for stealing music. Some have relented and paid up, but others feeling falsely accused have fought back and won.

"Following years of vicious and unmitigated attacks by the RIAA and its cohorts, [judge] John V. Acosta awarded her nearly $108,000 in fees and costs."

However, the RIAA tried to negotiate with Ms. Anderson and get her to accept $30K. That didn’t work. Then they tried $60K. Ms. Anderson declined.

Finally, the RIAA paid in full: US$107,951.03. "The judgment was entered against Atlantic Recording Corp, Priority Records, Capitol records, UMG Recordings and BMG Music," according to p2pnet.

However, the disabled Oregon mother isn’t done. Soon, she’ll file a malicious prosecution suit against Atlantic Recording Company. The filing described what she and her daughter had to go through in the first case and seeks punitive damages.
