Yes we were to do this show last week--HOWEVER COMCAST mucked up my net and so we are doing this show tonight


Attorney Sarah Steele and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.

The audience should know that although Ms. Steele is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a competent local attorney for any legal advice they may require.

This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law.
Tonight we discuss privacy on the web versus illegal piracy activity.  Lionsgate film studio has been allowed to subpoena companies to help it find those who pirated copies of The Expendables 3.  They will now ask companies including Google and GoDaddy to find the sharers' identities.  Third parties also subpoenad include CloudFlare, Incapsula, Google, GoDaddy and Domains by Proxy LLC.  Lionsgate may demand the production of electronically stored information such as billing records, website content, server logs and correspondence.  To many, this flies in the face of privacy concerns that are very hot right now.  Tune in to hear where this falls on the “legally allowable” versus “internet privacy" spectrum.
