Ninth Circuit nominee Goodwin Liu's secret copyright-litigating past relvealed

There's been a lot written, pro and con, about the nomination of Berkeley Law School professor Goodwin Liu to the Ninth Circuit. But I've seen nothing about Liu's work on the truly important issue of our times, on which he was aligned unambiguously with the forces of truth and light:
Time Warner v. ReplayTV Complaint

For the record, I worked on the ReplayTV case while an associate at O'Melveny & Myers, but never actually met Liu, who was 3,000 miles away in the Washington office. Interestingly, Ron Klain, also listed on the caption of the ReplayTV complaint, is now Vice President Biden's chief of staff.


  1. Ben, I have just read your piece in Billboard. One of the best resumes of the copyright standoff I have read.


  2. "forces of truth and light"

    *falsehood and darkness*


    Note that this is not a rant, I just wanted to fix your typo Ben.

If you want to rant about how evil the RIAA and MPAA are, and how entertainment companies' employees and attorneys are bad people, there are plenty of other places for you to go.
