RIAA Case Against Tanya Andersen Dismissed With Prejudice

Some time ago I reported on the case of Tanya Andersen, the 41 year old disabled single mother who was wrongly sued by the RIAA for allegedly downloading Gansta Rap on Kazaa (actually, the RIAA alleged that the offender was her daughter, who was 7 at the time) and responded by counter-suing them for just about everything in the book (including, notably, racketeering, fraud, and electronic tresspass). Now Recording Industry vs. The People is reporting that the RIAA has agreed that the case be dismissed with prejudice. This means that the RIAA admits Andersen's innocence, and permits her to continue pursuing her counterclaims. A good analysis of the situation is available at Ars Technica.
