Sometimes stories speak for themselves: RIAA Wants to Depose Dead Defendant’s Children; But Will Allow them 60 Days to Grieve.  But there is a happy ending (such as it is): RIAA’s “abundance of sensitivity” ends harassment of grieving family.  Not that their change of ‘heart’ wipes the record clean for the RIAA- they’re just aware of how bad PR can hurt them.  You know that they’d still be on the family’s case of news of this hadn’t leaked out.  Though it’s a lot to read, the Slashdot comments on this story are worth pouring over, especially some readers’ recommendations about how to show your displeasure with the RIAA (i.e. tell them directly, boycott their clients).
