Billion Dollar Charlie takes on the RIAA

,----[ Quote ]
| Ars sits down with "Billion Dollar Charlie" Nesson, the Harvard Law professor 
| who's taking on the RIAA in federal court. Winning his case would be great, 
| but Nesson's thinking even bigger. He wants nothing less than a national, 
| Internet-enabled conversation about copyright and damages in the digital age.   


Is AT&T violating DMCA by not booting 'repeat infringers'?

| One of revelations that surfaced following last week's report that AT&T was 
| helping the recording industry fight illegal file sharing was how differently 
| Internet service providers interpret U.S. copyright law.   


U.K. Biz 'Disappointed' At EU Term Extension Rejection

| Council of the European Union rejected a proposal on term extension for 
| copyright in sound recordings.  


MPAA, RIAA continue to woo ISPs

| As the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and Motion Picture 
| Association of America (MPAA) continue to look for ways to combat

| providers operating in the United States.   



The RIAA vs. 19 Year Old Cancer Patient

,----[ Quote ]
| Among the RIAA's latest targets in its campaign to sue its customer base into
| submission is a 19-year-old cancer patient. Ciaro Sauro was ruled a music
| pirate after failing to defend herself in court against charges from the RIAA
| that she was sharing music files online. Ms. Sauro has said she couldn't
| defend herself as she is hospitalized once a week, and vehemently denies the
| allegations that she is a pirate.


RIAA Sued For Racketeering Yet Again

,----[ Quote ]
| A few people have filed lawsuits against the RIAA for racketeering in the
| past, though these charges have always been dismissed. In one such case,
| where the filed charges were dismissed over the summer, new claims were filed
| again charging the RIAA with racketeering for extortion, mail fraud and wire
| fraud in its ongoing efforts involving weakly supported threats against
| alleged file sharers demanding money to avoid being sued.
