Charges Dropped In PA Video Taping Arrest 177

Cumberland County District Attorney David Freed has reversed himself completely over the charges against Brian Kelly, arrested for wiretapping after videotaping a police stop. Now let's see if they are good enough to compensate Kelly for the 26 hours he spent in jail and the anguish of the cloud over his future caused by a felony arrest. From the article: "... [DA] Freed said his decision will affect not only Brian Kelly, 18, but also will establish a policy for police departments countywide. 'When police are audio- and video-recording traffic stops with notice to the subjects, similar actions by citizens, even if done in secret, will not result in criminal charges,' Freed said yesterday. 'The law itself might need to be revised.'"

Submission + - Musicians Fight For Net Neutrality

Erin Lenseth writes: "Musicians are now fighting for net neutrality,fearing that certain internet providers will soon charge a fee to those who want their websites to have faster loading times. The Rock the Net Campaign, an advocacy group composed of lesser known artists, is now being backed by the Future of Music Coaliation, which is supported by the likes of R.E.M. This begs the question- are ISPs going too far in their quest to generate more profit?"
