Record Companies, RIAA Prevail In Music Downloading Trial
Legal Topics | 2009/08/03 16:20
The National Law Journal reports that a jury in a high-profile federal copyright infringement trial on Friday ordered a Boston University graduate student to pay $675,000 to several record companies for illegally downloading and distributing 30 of their songs.

Joel Tenenbaum appeared stoic as the jury announced that each of the 30 counts of willful infringement would cost him $22,500. The tab -- while steep -- is far less than the $4.5 million that the companies could have received had the jury imposed the maximum per-song damages allowed under law. Copyright law allows for damages of $750 to $30,000 for each copyright infringement and up to $150,000 for each willful infringement.

Tenenbaum said he was happy the verdict wasn't in the millions and "not displeased with the jury given how the trial went."

In a statement for the plaintiffs' side, the RIAA said the organization "appreciates that Mr. Tenenbaum finally acknowledged that artists and music companies deserve to be paid for their work. ...We only wish he had done so sooner rather than lie about his illegal behavior."


Sahara Sued By EEOC For National Origin Harassment And Retaliation
Legal Topics | 2009/08/02 20:32
According to the EEOC website, the Sahara Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip violated federal law by creating a hostile work environment for an Egyptian kitchen employee through a daily barrage of derogatory comments due to his national origin and retaliating against him when he reported it, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) charged in a lawsuit filed today.

According to the EEOC's complaint, the Sahara's supervisors and coworkers continuously belittled and harassed Ezzat Elias, whose job was delivering food from the kitchen to the hotel buffet and maintaining the buffet, because of his Egyptian heritage. The harassment included offensive comments, slurs, and graffiti, such as being called “Bin Laden,” “Taliban,” and “f ____ Egyptian” and being told to “go back to Egypt.” Elias was also targeted with graffiti, which he was then required to wash off. Despite Elias’s repeated complaints of such harassment, the defendants failed to take effective measures to stop it. Instead, supervisors retaliated against him, which included disciplinary write-ups and suspension.

Survey: Workplace Sexual Harassment Complaints Rise
Legal Topics | 2009/08/02 20:10
According to The Jerusalem Post, Israeli help centers are receiving more calls regarding sexual harassment in the workplace, according to a recent survey.

The survey, which was conducted by Millward Brown, examined the level of exposure and awareness of harassment incidents in the workplace.

Awareness of everything connected to the subject of sexual harassment in the workplace was low, the survey revealed. More than half of those surveyed were unaware that sexual relations between workers and their bosses are forbidden, and 28 percent of those surveyed said they had experienced some sort of sexual harassment in the workplace within the past three years.

When Jaundice Leads To Brain Injury
Legal Topics | 2009/08/02 18:27
According to ABC News, Susan Haas says that when her daughter, Lexi, was born she was a normal, healthy baby girl. So when Lexi, at 3 days old, developed jaundice -- a common liver condition that is estimated to affect six out of every 10 babies -- the doctor was not concerned, Haas said.

That was seven years ago. Today at 6:30 a.m., Lexi, 7, headed into an operating room for brain surgery. It is an extreme measure for a brain injury that Haas said could have been caught early and treated inexpensively.

"She would not be having any problems if she'd had a $1 bilirubin test," she said. Instead, Haas estimated that medical expenses and other services would cost $25 million over Lexi's life.

If your child has had the same experience, you may want to consider finding a brain injury lawyer to help you file a case. For those in the New York area, John Q. Kelly and his law firm can be of assistance. They've had many high profile cases, including O.J. Simpson and the estate of Natalee Holloway.

California Court Closures Set, Despite Grumbling
Legal Topics | 2009/07/31 16:09
According to The Recorder, the Judicial Council on Wednesday ordered all California courthouses closed once a month starting Sept. 16, despite ongoing complaints from labor groups, sheriffs and some judges that the closures are unnecessary and potentially dangerous.

"I hate it," said council member Richard Huffman, a justice on the 4th District Court of Appeal. But, he added, "We believe it is the only rational mechanism available to us to minimize the impact to the public."

The third-Wednesday-each-month closures will save an estimated $85.3 million and are a key part of the judicial branch's overall plan to cut spending, raise fees and siphon savings to close a $393 million deficit. The Legislature authorized the closures as part of the $26 billion budget revision signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Tuesday.


11-Word Press Snippets Might Violate Copyright
Headline Legal News | 2009/07/30 16:17
According to Courthouse News, a Danish press-clipping company could be violating copyright by printing out 11-word snippets of news articles, the European Court of Justice ruled.

The Luxembourg-based court remanded the issue to Denmark for a determination on whether the snippets comprise intellectual property.

Media monitoring services company Infopaq International challenged the Danske Dagblades Forening, an association of Danish daily newspapers, over a requirement for permission to distribute 11-word extracts of news stories.

Legal framework for the permission requirement includes the 1979 Berne Convention, the 1994 Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights as administered by the World Trade Organization, and European directives from 1996 and 2001 meant to govern electronic information and protect "European cultural creativity."

Infopaq argued that its process of scanning news articles, converting the data to text and emailing its customers summaries containing the five words before and after a keyword comprise fleeting use that's exempt from the permission requirements. Infopaq also prints out cover sheets with the text snippets.

The Court of Justice said it is up to the national court to determine whether the snippets comprise intellectual property.
