Interview with Harvard law prof who's challenging the constitutionality of the RIAA suits

David Weinberger sez, "Charlie Nesson (of the Berkman Center and Harvard Law) and Joel Tennenbaum discuss (it's a podcast) their countersuit against the RIAA on Constitutional grounds. Charlie argues that the RIAA is a private agency enforcing a criminal statute…using the federal court as a collection agency, as he puts it. Charlie is also quite eloquent about the unfairness of the massive apparatus of state being trained on single, unrepresented individuals."

If this doesn't a) fill you with rage and b) fill you with hope, you are dead inside. What a great piece of audio.
