Should Professors Be Required To Teach With Tech?

Vengie Re:Using what works is what matters (319 comments)

1) That is why you use a panel system in larger classes. 2) I have used the socratic method just fine in tandem with group projects, etc, at the undergraduate level.

RIAA Confusion In Tenenbaum & Thomas Cases?

Vengie Re:Let's play this out to the end, shall we? (229 comments)

What does that have to do with what the LAW is. Bad facts make bad law, sometimes, but there is a question of law here.

RIAA Confusion In Tenenbaum & Thomas Cases?

Vengie Re:Not settling (229 comments)

New York: Supreme Court (Trial) => Appellate Division (App Div) => Court of Appeals(Highest Court in State). Also you are not entirely correct, in some circumstances, Appellate decisions are binding to ALL lower courts, and in some jurisdictions, they are binding on only those lower courts over which they have direct review. (So the Nassau County Supreme court wouldn't be bound by 1st Department Decisions, but New York County Supreme would. N.b. In New York, this is not the case -- Appellate Decisions from any department are binding provided that the department with direct review does not have conflicting precedent)

RIAA Confusion In Tenenbaum & Thomas Cases?

Vengie Re:Not settling (229 comments)

This is not criminal. It's civil. All of the things you cite (except one) go to damages, not liability. Going to law school has made me hate slashdot so much more.

RIAA Confusion In Tenenbaum & Thomas Cases?

Vengie Re:Settlement (229 comments)

IAAL. I am assuming you meant to write "IANAL." A trial court ruling, while not binding on other courts (but certainly persuasive) may in some instances be binding on that same trial court, and as a practical matter, often is even when it need not be. Also, there may be an estoppel issue for the RIAA lurking here.

Man Tracked Down and Arrested Via WoW

Vengie Re:Did you read & understand the article? (464 comments)

Rather than enter a special appearance to move to quash, they just waived personal jurisdiction. Nothing to see here. .....

Author Encourages Users to Pirate His Book

Vengie Re:I don't think so... (237 comments)

IAAL. 17 U.S.C. 501(b) authorizes an exclusive licensee to sue for inringement. he has granted an exclusive license. thus he might not want to sue you, but his publisher can. Look through the Silvers v. Sony Pictures case -- unless his contract specifically deals with the right to sue for infringement....his publisher can.
