Hash: SHA1

Anti-Piracy Group Raids P2P Admin’s House Without Warrant

,----[ Quote ]
| Ever since it became clear that running a P2P links site is not a crime in 
| Spain, music anti-piracy group SGAE have threatened civil action. Yesterday 
| the admin of two P2P sites had a home visit by members of SGAE, who took 
| advantage of the admin’s legal naivety and conducted a search of his property 
| without a suitable warrant.    


Conference Board of Canada admits that its publicly funded, plagiarized, biased
copyright "research" is junk

,----[ Quote ]
| The Conference Board of Canada, a Canadian think-tank that was caught 
| regurgitating a US lobby-group's press materials in a tax-funded report on 
| the Digital Economy, has withdrawn its copyright-related reports, 
| stating "these reports did not follow the high quality research standards of 
| The Conference Board of Canada."     



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.


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 lied to the US Congress

,----[ Quote ]
| In April the RIAA told US lawmakers that it was not going to chase individual
| file-sharers any more and was going to stop dragging grannies, homeless
| people and kids into court using dodgy evidence obtained by methods that
| seemed to break some state laws.
