Well, I was afforded the opportunity to write for a slightly different audience -- the judges who belong to the Judicial Division
of the American Bar Association. I was invited by the The Judges' Journal
, their quarterly publication, to do a piece on the RIAA litigations for the ABA's Summer, 2008, 'Equal Access to Justice' issue. What I came up with was 'Large Recording Companies vs. The Defenseless : Some Common Sense Solutions to the Challenges of the RIAA Litigations'
, in which I describe the unfairness of these cases and make 15 suggestions as to how the courts could make it a more level playing field. I'm hoping the judges mod my article '+5 Insightful', but I'd settle for '+3 Informative'. For the actual article go here
(PDF). (If anyone out there can send me a decent HTML version of it, I'll run that one up the flagpole as well.)
