Harvard prof faces sanctions for blogging deposition excerpts from downloading case

, The National Law Journal

Harvard Law School professor Charles Nesson faces possible court sanctions for an Internet posting of deposition excerpts from his defense of a college student facing copyright infringement charges for illegal Internet music downloads. Nesson is representing a Boston University student in a case that several record companies and the Recording Industry Association of America filed against the students. Nesson stated that he "felt it necessary to approach (but hopefully not cross)" the court's authority to circumscribe his and his client's liberty "to record the history of the process to which he is forced to submit."
