Michigan State women’s golf coach, Stacy Slobodnik-Stoll is the latest victim in the music industry’s overzealous crackdown on illegal downloading.
According to the DETROIT NEWS, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the same RIAA that earlier this year unsuccessfully went after a disabled single mother and her eight year old daughter, claim that the 36-year-old coach illegally used peer-to-peer file copying networks and distribution systems to obtain or share 73 copyrighted audio files.
Seven media conglomerates, including Warner Bros. and Sony, are seeking an unspecified amount of damages from the married mother of one who has served her alma mater as the face of the Spartans’ women’s golf program for the last 11 years. Slobodnik-Stoll is accused of using an Internet protocol address issued by Michigan State to get her fix of illegally downloaded tunes.
None of the 73 copyrighted audio files have been named, but for her sake let’s hope it wasn’t a Ron Artest produced track. I hear he’s got a little bit of a temper.
