P2P Technology Expert Witness Hired in UMG v. Lindor

Marie Lindor has retained a well known expert witness in her Brooklyn federal court case, UMG v. Lindor. RIAA alleges copyright infringement due to shared files on Lindor’s home computer. Professor Johan Pouwelse, P2P technology expert, will testify regarding file sharing networks.

Prof. Johan Pouwelse, Chairman of the Parallel and Distributed Systems Group of Delft University of Technology, testified against RIAA’s MediaSentry ‘investigations’ (PDF) in a case in the Netherlands. His expert witness testimony resulted in the court directing ISPs in the Netherlands not to turn over their subscribers’ information. Lindor hopes to discredit RIAA’s software expert witness, Dr. Doug Jacobson, writes the New York Country Lawyer.
