Warner CEO's kids have a get-out-of-jail-free card from RIAA

Turns out that not all’s fair in war… Despite the wave of RIAA lawsuits, one particular parent is not going to be serving court time because his kid stole some music.  By coincidence, it just so happens that the parent of the criminal is a label head.  There’s this Wired story about it: Warner Music CEO Admits His Kids Stole Music, Didn’t Get Sue and also a Slashdot discussion.  I’m sure the kiddies got a stern talking-to but even if he had to go to court, I don’t think a few thousand dollars in settlement would upset his bottom line.  We can only hope that other parents who are being sued will cite this as precedent.
