General Off-Topic Board / Bad news for Kazaa users.

Court Docs Reveal Kazaa Logging User Downloads

The most explosive documents in the ongoing Kazaa court case have emerged today, including logs of discussions between parent company Sharman and the Estonian developer of the Kazaa Media Desktop. They include extraordinary admissions like: "Reporting will make Kazaa look like spyware, as soon as it becomes evident we record downloads and playbacks, users will flee to competitive networks" and then "One can argue that we have knowledge of copyrighted material being downloaded in our network and have to install filters. If we are reporting [gold] files, then technically we could do the same for every file." Finally, "RIAA [could] collect the IP addresses for everyone who has searched for or downloaded that file." Despite the Kazaa developer's concerns over these issues, Kazaa went ahead with the logging." (More below.)

Warne continues "APC Magazine journalist Garth Montgomery, who has covered every day of the trial in the Australian Federal Court, says: "In a nutshell, this has got to rate as the most explosive document revealed. It makes it damn near impossible to maintain the separation theory that Sharman and Altnet rely on in terms of business independence and technical infrastructure. The control they exercise over the system is complete." Montgomery has also scanned in all the documents and made them available in PDF format, including the confidential Kazaa purchase contract and technical specifications for the Kazaa Media Desktop."

General Off-Topic Board / Atlantic Monthly or Herpes?
« on: January 25, 2005, 10:34:58 AM »

Im beginning to think that I do not want to go to law school next
year. There are several reasons why I may put it off a year or two and

I will discuss my reasons later ... but does anyone know how this
will affect me in reapplying?

Will I be penalized by schools at which I have already been accepted for reapplying next year or the year after?
Do I need new letters of recommendation?
I guess I would have to write a completely new PS?

Does anyone have any idea?

Law School Admissions / Hours/week worked on Resume (different question)
« on: December 06, 2004, 10:11:43 AM »
I cant remember how many hours/week I worked at some horrible customer service job 3 years ago. i put  25-35 hours per week but it could have been a bigger range like 15-30.

Does it really matter if this is exact (i.e. for character and fitness)

Law School Admissions / App Question: Hours worked per year for part-time?
« on: December 06, 2004, 10:06:26 AM »
Columbia, Cornell and a few others ask for hours worked per year of undergrad.


i had a job for 3 months of Freshman and 6 months of sophomore.
I worked about 25-35 hours per week at both.

Do I put...
Freshman: 25-35
Sophomore: 25-35

or do I have to divide it up.. i.e. 25-35 for 6 months =  15 on average for the whole year

What is everyone here doing ?
