University Resists RIAA Subpoenas
Jill Aho. University Accuses RIAA of ‘Spying’ On Students. Oregon Daily Emerald. Dec. 3, 2007. After the Oregon Department of Justice moved to quash an RIAA subpoena that sought the identities of University of Oregon students who allegedly committed copyright infringement, attorney general Hardy Myers’ office returns with another motion. This second motion alleges RIAA and MediaSentry are “spying” on Oregon residents. MediaSentry is a Maryland-based company that locates and identifies IP addresses that the RIAA targets in its litigation campaign against consumers. Part of OAG’s new claim is that MediaSentry is an investigator, and as such, not licensed to do business in the state of Oregon. Now that is awfully novel argument that takes a pair to present to a judge.
