Prof. Johan Pouwelse Agrees To Take on the RIAA's Expert

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.

I can already see the RIAA's ad hominem attack now...

"What, your CV is only 2 pages long? That's 1/13 the length of our expert! Which means you must possess 1/13 of the experience, or perhaps 1/13 of the knowledge. I don't see any names of students, people you've met, pets, or children. What kind of expert are you?"

Sometimes, you have to pity your enemy when you know what's in store for them.

Kick ass and take names Professor!
