RIAA has just confirmed that they have filed a lawsuit against a Houston resident, for copyright infringement. When asked to elaborate, an RIAA spokesperson said "Lets just say that he's gonna end up worse than Britney Spears." It was revealed one hour later that the spokesperson who made these comment was being sued by the RIAA for using Spears' name in a sentence.
As the day progressed more details have emerged about this case. It has been discovered that the man is being sued for two-hundred thousand dollars, because he mentioned the words "Fall Out Boy" in a sentence. In an RIAA press release, The RIAA chairman, Satan Christ stated; "We have made it very clear that any use of any word associated with anything even remotely associated with any planet which contains audio recordings is copyright infringement, unless you have the permission of the RIAA."
A lawyer represented the sued man stated that the use of the words was "out of context". "What my client actually said was "I started to fall for this boy. When I told my girlfriend I was gay, she kicked me out. This does not involve Fall Out Boy in any way, aside from the fact that my client probably has seen the Pete Wentz dick photos."
But the RIAA insists that Fall Out Boy own the rights to all three of the words in their name. The RIAA is currently involved in many court battles, including one with the US government, to ban music and the use of the word "music". They today announced that they had copyrighted the letters "R", "I", and "A", and these letters may not be used in any sentence. This most likely means that I am going to be involved in a court battle with the RIAA for using those letters in this article.
