I'm wondering if they are just going by the name of the file without even
verifying the contents of the file.
One has to wonder if this isn't a Beavis-and-Butthead routine, where one
group hired by the RIAA to seed file sharing networks with bogus and corrupt
versions of files has managed to plonk a suspiciously named file onto
somebody's hard drive, and then the *other* group hired by the RIAA to find
violators has found said file...
It would fit in with the level of forensic rigor we've seen in the past...
