[News] MAFIAA Attacks Another Site, Uses Corruptible Politicians to Buy Laws

Hash: SHA1

Recording Industry Tries To Shut Down Search Engine In Spain Without Allowing
It To Defend Itself

,----[ Quote ]
| Luckily, the judge did not fall for this, and after a hearing in which both 
| sides presented their position, is allowing the site to continue operating 
| while the trial continues, noting that shutting down the site: "might cause 
| irreparable prejudice to the defendant." It's good to see another reasonable 
| ruling, though troubling that the recording industry tried to push for an 
| immediate injunction.     


Film industry turns up P2P heat on Carter

,----[ Quote ]
| The UK film industry today backed the record industry's long-running campaign 
| for laws to force ISPs to cut off persistent illegal filesharers from the 
| internet.  
| At a conference in London today, a coalition including Federation Against 
| Copyright Theft (FACT), the UK film sector's copyright enforcement body, will 
| aim to put pressure on the communications minister, Lord Carter. FACT will 
| add to lobbying by its record industry counterpart the BPI for the government 
| to impose French-style "graduated response" regulations on ISP, that end in 
| disconnection if warnings are ignored.     


What the MAFIAA wants the MAFIAA eventually gets. It's just a question of being
able to suppress those who see their crimes. Money -- not common sense -- buys


RIAA Brief Attacks Free Software Foundation

,----[ Quote ]
| In their proposed response, the RIAA lawyers personally attacked The Free
| Software Foundation, Ray Beckerman (NewYorkCountryLawyer), and NYCL's
| blog, 'Recording Industry vs. The People'. The 9-page response (PDF) — 4
| pages longer than the document to which it was responding — termed the FSF an
| organization 'dedicated to eliminating restrictions on copying,
| redistribution, and modifying computer programs', and accused the FSF of
| having an 'open and virulent bias against copyrights' and 'blatant bias'
| against the record companies.


RIAA publicly humiliates judge Nancy Gertner

,----[ Quote ]
| Hired RIAA attack lawyers Timothy Reynolds (Holme Roberts & Owen) and Daniel
| Cloherty  (Dwyer & Collora) apparently think it’s perfectly acceptable to
| tell a judge to take a hike.
