    Subject: Swire Declaration for Verizon in case with RIAA
    From: "Peter Swire" <peterat_private>
    To: <declanat_private>
    Yesterday I filed a Declaration on behalf of Verizon in its case with the
    RIAA.  Here's a flavor of what I think of the RIAA's legal position:
    "The subpoenas will become a new form of spam.  Fraudulent subpoenas will
    be easy to file, with no judicial oversight.  Any of us who visit a
    website, but don't want to reveal our names, will now be at serious risk
    of being tracked back to our homes."
    The Declaration is at my web page, at www.peterswire.net, under "Current
    Professor Peter P. Swire

    Formerly, Chief Counselor for Privacy,
