Legal Clinic at Franklin Pierce Law Center in New Hampshire representing RIAA defendant in UMG Recordings v. Roy

We have recently learned that student attorneys* at the Consumer and Commercial Law Clinic of the Franklin Pierce Law Center in Concord, New Hampshire, have joined the fight against the RIAA, and have been defending a person targeted by the RIAA in New Hampshire, in UMG Recordings v. Roy.

The case is scheduled for trial in the Fall of 2009.

*Student attorneys are law students working under the supervision of law school faculty members.

[Ed. note. That makes at least four (4) law school clinical programs, of which we are aware, providing legal assistance to people targeted by the RIAA: the University of San Francisco School of Law, the University of Maine Law School, Franklin Pierce Law Center, and most recently Harvard University Law School. Hopefully many more will follow. -R.B.]

Someone posted a very short comment which said "fplc" and something else. I deleted it, thinking it was comment spam, which I now realize it wasn't. Sorry.

Didn't know where else I could have posted this, but it kind of made me smile to see how desperate these RIAA punks are getting.

Hey Ray - interested in your perspective on today's change of RIAA strategy of far fewer suits, instead attacking a user's internet connection (with ISP complicity) without any substantiation

(and I'd rather read and discuss it here than on slyck or other annoying forums)
