You're going to need some time to sit down for this one this week. In case you haven't yet, please read NPR intern Emily White's blog. Then read professor and ex-musician David Lowery's response. Then read Travis Morrison of The Dismemberment Plan's response to Lowery. If you make it through all of that, I've got some thoughts on all three pieces here.

From the ArticleThe labels allege that 11 specific tracks were shared by the Howells, though the only evidence of such sharing was the fact that the files were in a shared folder and were also downloaded by the RIAA's investigative arm, MediaSentry (now SafeNet). According to the EFF, though, this simply is not evidence of actual copyright infringement.

A new technology called Clouseau allegedly prevents peer-to-peer copyright infringement.
Article"Every day, 420 million searches for pirated materials are conducted in P2P networks. At any given time there are more than nine million users on P2P networks around the world pirating copyrighted material. The best efforts of the FBI can hardly be expected to make a significant difference. The FBI does its best, but only after a crime has taken place. Clouseau prevents the crime from happening in the first place. The FBI can only handle a limited number of incidents. Clouseau prevents them all.
