Another exemplary masterpiece from the Beckerman pen. Furthermore the arguments are, if this is possible, becoming ever more concise and, dare I say, irrefutable.

Thanks, jadeic. I had a lot more to say but the judge's rules limit reply briefs to 10 pages.

The defendant's argument is legally irrefutable. But you never know what will happen. We just have to wait and hope Judge Robinson does the right thing.

By the RIAA logic, every library in the world is making material available for checkout, and thus facilitating illegal copying. Even a computer-illiterate judge should understand this argument.

Missing word?
Page 5, line 3:
"(a) no authority at on the"

Should this be "at all on" ?

Hey, I think you're awesome and everything - I just wanted to point something out, though, and I don't immediately see any other place to do so. The link you have to the Weird Al song has some cross-site scripting (javascript) from SonyBMG.com . I am no expert in such scripts, but I know what Sony likes to do to 'protect' music (rootkits!?) and I know that javascript can be abused for many, many purposes.... Just thought I would point it out to you somewhere. Keep on being awesome, and I love your blog, too, by the way!
