RIAA North Carolina universities subpoenas quashed

From BNA News, The RIAA DMCA Subpoenas at UNC & NC State have been shot down, apparently because the court issuing the subpoenas lacked jurisdiction and because the copyrighted materials were found on computers outside of the University’s reach (in reference to an earlier case).

It would be wrong not to include a link to Decontructing Stupidity, articles by law professor and founder of the Center for the Study of the Public Domain, James Boyle. The article addresses several problems with current policy dealing with intellectual property. As you might by able to infer from the title, the author does not look favorably on current practices (namely, not actually basing assumptions on evidence). ^_^
