Submitted by

NewYorkCountryLawyer writes "The Technician Online at North Carolina State Unversity reports that its Director of Student Legal Services, Pam Gerace, has advised students to remain anonymous, and has indicated her office's willingness to challenge the RIAA's subpoenas. What is more, the newspaper urges students to take Ms. Gerace up on her offer. The fighting spirit of Jimmy Valvano lives on."

There were lots of casings there which were being cut and were used to patch cars.

+ - RIAA and $9 billion spent on ringtones

Submitted by Jared
Jared (1063050) writes "A detail that seems hidden in all the fuss over declining music sales by the RIAA and the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), is the fact that people bought over $9 billion USD worth of ringtones worldwide last year. That's right, $9 billion USD! This is about a 41% increase over last year and is expected to hit about $32 billion USD by the year 2010. http://www.zeropaid.com/news/8635/Why+doesn't+the+ RIAA+talk+about+the+%249+billion+USD+in+ringtone+s ales%3F"
