Cindy Cohn Part I

This “special edition” of the Podcast is the audio from a talk given by Cindy Cohn, the legal director and general counsel for the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Ms. Cohn spoke to a meeting of the Internet Law Committee of the Intellectual Property Law Association of Chicago (“IPLAC”) on November 4, 2005. Ms. Cohn discussed issues relating to file sharing — in particular, the Grokster decision, as well as actions taken by the entertainment industry against individual file-sharers.

The talk is being presented here at in two parts. This first part is Ms. Cohn’s main talk. The question and answer sesssion (edited for brevity and understandability) will be posted as Part 2 at a later date.

This was a lunchtime meeting, so please excuse the sound in the backgroud of soda cans opening, and other general sounds such as papers rattling, etc.
