Marie Lindor Submits Papers from Netherlands courts Showing Media Sentry's Tom Mizzone's Investigations are Unreliable

Countering the RIAA's post-argument submission to Magistrate Judge Levy, in support of its protective order motion to conceal the MediaSentry contracts from Ms. Lindor's attorneys, in UMG v. Lindor, Ms. Lindor submitted the expert witness declaration and court's decision in Foundation v. UPC Nederland, which detailed a number of ways in which the investigations of plaintiffs' witness -- Tom Mizzone of MediaSentry -- were inherently unreliable. Ms. Lindor's attorneys said that this heightened the need for a thorough deposition and crossexamination of Mr. Mizzone, since the RIAA's attorneys had revealed at the oral argument that Mr. Mizzone was the sole MediaSentry witness they were intending to call.

also excelent is the transcript of the cross examination of the other MediaSentry Guy, Millin, that is not in the office in the middle of the night, can't see who is in front of the alledged computer that got the alledgedly infringing IPaddress and that in essence have only hearsay stuff to talk about.

Wasn't it also in the middle of the (U.S.timezone) night that the MediaSentryInvestigator Mizzone recorded the IP address that was alledgedly given to Lindor and took this screenshots with names that alledgedly shows copyrighted files?

(me haven't yet seen any copyright for the letters a-z in general and no copyright for mp3recordings?! where are the original mp3's that are copyrighted and have a valid copyright certificate?)
