Since the silliness that began with Lars Ulrich and Metallica, I have continued to follow the actions the RIAA continues to take against regular “joes.” I have mixed opinions about music file-sharing, which I have shared a few times.

Ars Technica recently published a story about the status of the Boston University graduate student Joel Tenenbaum trial: How Harvard Law threw down the gauntlet to the RIAA. The article is a but lengthy, but describes Harvard’s position, how the Law School is handling the case, and what it could mean for all of us music aficionados waiting to see how this thing turns out.
