Exclusive Interview with RIAA Juror: 'We Wanted to Send a Message'

Wow. Dumbest jury since the OJ verdict? No, don't want people to think they grow 'em dumb in Duluth. It _sounds_ like the lady was guilty, but at least this juror come off looking like an IDIOT...

It took the jury in Capitol Records v. Thomas only five minutes to find that 30-year-old Jammie Thomas had infringed recording industry copyrights on 24 music tracks, according to the first juror to speak out on the verdict. After that, it was just haggling over the price, the juror tells Wired News' THREAT LEVEL blog.

MediaDefender (RIAA shill company)

I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more (any?) mainstream press. Apparently some hackers got into "Media Defenders"' email system and 700 megs worth of email were "liberated". From the article: "MediaDefender specializes in file-sharing mitigation—practices that disrupt and deter infringing uses of P2P file-sharing networks". Included in the emails were many of the "dirty tricks" Media Defender employs to try and stop, or at least slow down, P2P downloading of music for their client. Some of these tactics are putting up fake files, and "polluting" bittorrent downloads with garbage data. One of the more interesting tacks taken by these guys was to set up a front company that invited users to upload videos and download others, at high speed. The users ip's would be logged, and the location and possibly users themselves tracked down. Apparently they even had a deal to share this info with NY state Attorney General! Many have called this 'entrapment', but I don't buy that. Sleazy? Yes. Entrapment? No. Anyway, ars technica has some of the only coverage of this. Here's the lead story to start you off.
