Submission + - Stanford to Charge Reconnect Fee for DMCA Notices

theantipop writes: It would appear that Stanford has not taken a liking to being on the MPAA's top 25 worst offenders list. Last week the university issued notice of a new policy in which students are charged a reconnection fee, ranging from $100 to $1000, after they are the victim of a DMCA complaint. The policy is to take effect September 1 last this year. As a show of "good faith" they are graciously allowing all students to start at the $100 fee level for subsequent notices.

Submission + - Mooninite Fallout: Terrorist Hoax Improvements Act

theantipop writes: Ars Technica has a story about the Terrorist Hoax Improvements Act, a bill introduced recently by the Senate. The bill aims to "amend the federal criminal code to include a number of new clauses meant to up the ante on wasting government resources. The amendments include extensions to the prohibitions on the spread of false information and mailing threats, increases to maximum prison terms, and allowances for civil suits so that local and federal governments can attempt to recoup expenses related to an incident." This is undoubtedly a result of the Great Mooninite Scare of 2007.
