PFF flays Techdirt post on DoJ statutory damages brief in Thomas-Rasset case
Earlier this week, I corrected the record on Techdirt's falsehoods about various Department of Justice attorneys who had once represented recording industry clients while in private practice. Today at the Progress & Freedom Foundation's blog, Tom Sydnor takes on Techdirt's numerous misstatements and mischaracterizations of the law regarding statutory damages, as well as the facts of the Jammie Thomas-Rasset case. The post by Sydnor, a former Counsel for Intellectual Property and Technology on the Senate Judiciary Committee, is lengthy, but highly substantive, and well worth reading.
