In UMG v. Lindor, the case in which the RIAA's expert -- Dr. Doug Jacobson -- was deposed on February 23, 2007, Ms. Lindor has retained her own expert: Prof. Johan Pouwelse, An Assistant Professor in the Parallel and Distributed Systems Group at Delft University of Technology, in the Netherlands. It was Prof. Pouwelse's testimony in Foundation v. UPC Nederland in the Netherlands, analyzing the RIAA's MediaSentry investigation, which caused the courts of that country to decline the request by the RIAA's sister organization for the ISP's in that country to turn over the names and addresses of their subscribers.
