When Ed Felten countersued the RIAA, asking a court to declare his
work was *not* illegal, the RIAA backpedaled so fast as to break the
land speed record for reverse circumnavigation by bicycle - they
*really* didn't want that question asked. Quoting the number is
extremely far from clearly illegal, and you don't have to be a US
legal expert to know that. Your sarcastic ad hominem is not only
ridiculous, but simply incorrect.
