Submission + - Has RIAA expert Jacobson contradicted himself? ( 1

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes: "A year and five months after examining the defendant's hard drive in UMG v. Lindor, the RIAA's "expert" witness, Dr. Doug Jacobson, has issued a "supplemental report" which appears to contradict his earlier "reports" alluding to the hard drive inspection. In view of the superb job the Slashdot community and the Groklaw community did in helping first to prepare for, and then to vet, Jacobson's deposition, I humbly submit for your learned review the now three (3) versions of the "expert's" opinions based on the hard drive, for your analysis. As with almost all federal litigation documents nowadays, they are, unfortunately, in *pdf format: (a) December 19, 2006, declaration; (b) unsigned October 25, 2006, report, awaiting approval from RIAA lawyers; and (c) December 15, 2007, version. The initial observations of commentators on my blog are located here."

Has RIAA expert Jacobson contradicted himself?

  • I am slightly annoyed that a self-proclaimed computer security expert does not know how to spell "administrator".

    In any case, this document is not different from the testimony he entered during the actual trial. He admitted freely during testimony that the hard drive he examined showed no evidence of file sharing, no indication that it had been wiped or otherwise modified, and that it appeared to have been used by the defendant to access the Internet.

    I guess this really amounts to "things I should have said

He's dead, Jim.
