Harvard Law Prof. sues RIAA

HIGH WIRE ACT

A Harvard law professor is question-
ing the constitutionality of a statute
used by the Recording Industry Asso-
ciation of America to bring lawsuits
against illegal file-sharers, Computer-
world reported.
Prof. Charles Nesson filed a claim on
behalf of Joe Tenenbaum, who is being
sued by the RIAA, challenging the use
of the Digital Theft Deterrence and
Copyright Damages Improvement Act
of 1999 on the grounds that it's uncon-
stitutional to apply the criminal law in
a civic case.
The RIAA filed its own motion say-
ing Nesson's claim fails to address spe-
cific issues.
"Indeed, Defendant's allegations
amount to little more than a complaint
about difficulties associated with being
a defendant in a lawsuit," the claim
said.
MAN SETS SELF ON FIRE ON CAMPUS
A former University of Washington
employee died after setting himself on

fire in the middle of the university's
campus Thursday, the Seattle Post-
Intelligencer reported.
The 61-year-old man doused himself
with gasoline before setting himself
ablaze, prompting onlookers to rush to
his aid before paramedics came.
"The flames were 7 or 8 feet high,
so it wasn't easy to get close to him at
first," said Tom Wang, a Washington
student.
Police couldn't determine any moti-
vation behind the man's actions. He
died from severe burns in the hospital
later that day.
OBAMA-BASHING FUN
The Young Conservatives of Texas
held an anti-Obama rally at Texas
A&M University last week in an effort
to bring attention to whattheythink is
lacking in the Democratic presidential
nominee's economic policies,.the Bat-
talion reported.
The rally consisted of two events:
Throw away your nest egg and Social-

ist-on-a-stick ring toss.
"We just want to make sure that stu-
dents understand what Obama's poli-
cies are, and what they will do to the
American economy, which is already
suffering," said Tony Listi, chairman
of the YCT.
The rally prompted accusations of
racism, and many students disagreed
with the YCT's tactics.
OLMERT FUNDS HIGHER ED
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert
restored $140 million to the higher
education budget, allowing universi-
ties in Israel to begin their academic
year this week, the Chronicle of High-
er Education reported.
University presidents had been can-
celing the upcoming semester after
the government refused to restore the
budget cuts it had made. The Universi-
ties hadbeen calling for a total of $625
million to be paid back over the next
five years.
