Court blocks RIAA subpoenas

Massachusetts Institute of Technology's and Boston College's challenges have proved to be successful -- at least for now. A Massachusetts court has decided that the universities involved do not have to provide RIAA with the identities of the alledged song swapers immediately.

There's not much to cheer about the ruling, though. It's based on a legal technicality -- RIAA has field all the subpoenas in D.C. federal court, when it should have filed them in the appropriate local courts instead.

RIAA says it will file subpoenas wherever courts require them to.
