The RIAA just doesn't learn its lesson sometimes. 16-year-old Robert Santangelo has seen privacy lawsuits before. His mom, Patti Santangelo, was sued by the RIAA in 2005 and refused to settle. She took her case public and became a hero to DRM hating nerds everywhere.

And the RIAA, stupid idiots, went ahead and sued her kid. Robert, like his mom, isn't taking no shit from no one. Robby demanded a jury trial and submitted a counterclaim, accusing the RIAA, amongst other things, of "engag[ing] in a wide-ranging conspiracy to defraud the courts of the United States." He went on to say that while the RIAA are "ostensibly competitors in the recording industry, are a cartel acting collusively in violation of the antitrust laws and public policy."

Keep on fighting the good fight, Robert.
