Ars has some great ongoing coverage of the Capitol Records v. Jammie Thomas case, including a gem on the Judge telling the MafiAA their president doesn't get to testify.

Toder argued that Sherman's testimony was not relevant to the question at hand, the fact of whether Thomas was liable for copyright infringement. Gabriel said that Sherman would be able to tell the jury why this case was significant and, more importantly, describe the harm the RIAA believes piracy has caused to the music industry.

"I don't want to turn this case into a soap box for the recording industry," Toder argued in response.
Bravo to Judge Davis.
