Submission + - Anti-piracy group uses infringing font in logo->

mister_playboy writes: TorrentFreak reports that Hadopi, the French agency charged with handling file-sharers’ copyright digressions, has just made a huge infringement faux pas of its own. Last week the group unveiled the logo which is set to represent this bastion of copyright righteousness, but embarrassingly it was designed with unlicensed fonts. Hadopi called the infringement an "error of manipulation" (article in French). The font's designer is considering legal action against Hadopi. Strike number one for the 3 strikes anti-piracy group!

Submission + - Why the FSF Cares About RIAA Lawsuits

mister_playboy writes: In one of the RIAA's high profile cases the Free Software Foundation backed defendant Joel Tenenbaum, much to the dislike of the music industry lobby. John Sullivan, Operations Manager at the FSF explains in a guest post at TorrentFreak http://torrentfreak.com/the-war-on-sharing-why-the-fsf-cares-about-riaa-lawsuits-090513/comment-page-3/#comment-560645 why they think these cases impact not just music, but also free software and its technology.
