I'm Marc W. Bourgeois, and I will be providing on-site coverage of the Capitol Records v. Thomas-Rasset trial from Minneapolis, MN. I'm an IT professional living in Madison, WI who for the past several years has had a keen interest in peer-to-peer related copyright enforcement, specifically with the recording industry litigation campaign.
I currently work for a Madison based online retailer managing system and network infrastructure. I've previously worked for the University of Wisconsin, Division of University Housing, where a portion of my job responsibilities included the processing of copyright related cease-and-desist (DMCA) notifications and the technical aspects relating to the recording industry pre-litigation campaign targeting colleges and universities.
I attended the previous trial in Duluth, MN and am looking forward to providing readers a first hand point-of-view for this trial and how it compares to the previous trial in October of 2007.
I will also be providing shorter updates throughout the trial via twitter at: http://twitter.com/mwbourgeois
Thank you and I look forward to providing readers an important first-hand perspective next week.
