Slashdot | MTU President Peeved At RIAA
The president of Michigan Technological University has responded to the RIAA suit against one of his students, accusing the RIAA of encouraging cooperation with universities but then bypassing those procedures with the current suit. Curtis Tompkins says, 'I am very disappointed that the RIAA decided to take this action in this manner. As a fully cooperating site, we would have expected the courtesy of being notified early and allowing us to take action following established procedures, instead of allowing it to get to the point of lawsuits and publicity.'
I'd be pissed as well. You should be able to expect *something* in return for full cooperation. Oops, that's right; we're dealing with the record industry.
