Harvard P2P lawyer: file-swapping is fair use—no, really!

Written by Daniel
Thursday, 02 April 2009

Not content to argue that massive damage awards against P2P file-swappers are unconstitutionally severe, Harvard Law professor Charlie Nesson claims that file-swapping is actually a "fair use" of copyrighted works. Unfortunately, his own expert witnesses don't agree.

they need not live in darkness...
Justice is foundation and Mercy ETERNAL

"All that we do is touched by Ocean
Yet we remain on the shore of what we know."
Richard Wilbur
