RIAA: “Making Available” Argument’s Failure Results in Voluntary Dismissal

Some time back, Usefularts reported on the failure of the RIAA’s “Making Available” Argument – which stated that simply having files that could be downloaded is the same as if they had been, ignoring any concept of intent.

Well, the other shoe has fallen. The RIAA has filed for a voluntary dismissal for the first court case in which that argument was tried, Atlantic Recording v. Brennan.

One can hope this marks a trend for all cases predicated upon such arguments.
