U Georgia official arrested for demanding bribes to make RIAA copyright notices go away

,----[ Quote ]
| The University of Georgia has fired Dorin 
| Lucian Dehelean, a security analyst who was 
| responsible for passing on RIAA copyright 
| infringement notices to the student body, 
| alleging that he demanded bribes from students 
| to make the record of their supposed 
| infractions go away.


Remarkable third trial coming for RIAA's first P2P defendant

,----[ Quote ]
| When Jammie Thomas (now Thomas-Rasset) became 
| the first alleged P2P file-swapper to take her 
| case all the way to trial and verdict, no one 
| suspected that she would actually have three 
| trials and verdicts, but that's the case 
| today, as the RIAA rejected a federal judge's 
| decision to slash Thomas-Rasset's damage 
| award. Instead, we're headed to a truncated 
| third trial on the issue of damages.

Did The Recording Industry Really Miss The Opportunity To 'Monetize' Online Music?

,----[ Quote ]
| Separately, the CNN article is incredibly
| weak in that it makes the mistake of
| implying that the recording industry is the
| entire music industry. It completely
| ignores the fact that the overall music
| industry has actually been growing as sales
| of recorded music have dropped. People have
| just shifted their spending habits, and
| that likely would have happened whether or
| not any licensing deal had been worked out
| in 1999.
