10th Cir.: Court reporters do not own a copyright in the transcripts that they

,----[ Quote ]
| The City and the court reporter complained to the district court and, after

| plaintiffs appealed in his individual capacity.   


US Gov't Briefing For All Employees: All Music Downloads Are Stolen, Risky

,----[ Quote ]
| Now, to be fair, it's rather obvious that the briefing is designed to keep 
| gov't employees from using file sharing programs and potentially exposing 
| confidential gov't documents via file sharing. And that's reasonable. But why

Isohunt judge says MPAA has yet to prove direct infringment

,----[ Quote ]
| BitTorrent search engines, The Pirate Bay, was brought up on criminal 
| misconduct charges and TorrentSpy's case was decided on a discovery sanction. 
| Some of the issues in the Usenet.com case closely resemble Isohunt and

| engine.    
| Usenet.com is a company that enabled users to access the Usenet network and 
| it too lost on a discovery sanction.

| A German software developer is alleging that a company hired by rights 
| holders to hunt down file sharers actually helped to seed the file he 
| eventually got sued for, according to a report from heise.de.

,----[ Quote ]
| We know that there's been an ongoing effort by entertainment industry
| lobbyists to convince politicians (and others) that file sharing and P2P apps

| files via those programs. Apparently the propaganda campaign has worked in at
| least one area: employees of the United States Antarctic Program (USAP) were
| sent an alert that they need to stop using all P2P programs.


Another Court Deals Major Blow to DVD Copying

,----[ Quote ]
| A California appeals court on Wednesday overturned a lower court ruling that
| had paved the way for a $10,000 DVD copying system called Kaleidescape and
| other products from the company with the same name.
