Observing the Process [8:22 am]

Better from a webcam than from the dock! US judge allows webcam to cover music-download suit (pdf)

In the first such ruling in the federal judiciary in Massachusetts, a judge in Boston agreed yesterday to allow video cameras in the courtroom to provide live Internet coverage of a high-interest lawsuit against a Boston University graduate student accused of downloading music illegally.

US District Court Judge Nancy Gertner said she will allow Courtroom View Network - a New York-based company that webcasts trials, primarily in state courts - to chronicle a key hearing Jan. 22 in the suit against the student, Joel Tenenbaum, by a group that represents the US recording industry.
