RIAA v. The People: Four Years and Counting

We just posted about RIAA and now the Center for Internet and Society is hosting a discussion about RIAA campaign against P2P. Please attend as I am sure this will be an informative and lively event.

RIAA v. The People: Four Years and Counting

    Speaker: Fred von Lohmann, Senior Intellectual Property Attorney for EFF
    Sept. 27 2007 - 12:45pm
    Stanford Law School, Room 280A
    Free and Open to the public (no rsvp required).
    Lunch will be served.

Four years ago, the recording industry inaugurated an unprecedented campaign of lawsuits against individuals who use peer-to-peer (P2P)file sharing networks to share music. Nearly 30,000 lawsuits later, has it worked? If not, what should be done instead? And what have we learned about the mechanics of federal civil litigation against
thousands of unrepresented individuals?

Drawing on a recent EFF report summarizing the first four years of the recording industry litigation effort, Fred will discuss the recording industry's tactics and describe alternatives that may be on the digital music horizon.
