Internet provider Grande Communications and the RIAA continue their fight in court. Much of the battle thus far has centered around evidence of copyright infringement. In a new filing at a Texas District Court, the ISP stresses that the RIAA’s evidence is misleading, as it doesn’t prove any actual distributions of the contested works.
Internet Provider Grande Communications has asked a Texas federal court to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the music group RIAA earlier this year. According to Grande, the Rightscorp notices the RIAA provides as evidence do not prove actual infringement. Even if they did, the ISP says it is a victim of piracy, not a perpetrator.
The RIAA has sued Grande Communications for failing to take action against its pirating subscribers. The music industry group says that the Texas-based ISP’s subscribers engaged in more than a million BitTorrent-based infringements yet took ”no meaningful action to discourage this continuing theft.”
