2007-06-14 Battering Ram - New Discovery Tool Unleashed

In this unsealed order from Columbia Pictures, et al. v. Brunelli, cv-06-1093 (CD Cal) [the Torrentspy copyright case], the federal magistrate ruled that information contained in a server's RAM constitute discoverable documents, and has ordered its production. Looks like a wire-tap, smells like a wire tap... That issue aside, this gives new meaning to the concept of a "continuing obligation" to produce.

cNEt calls this a "weapon of mass discovery." It certainly is, Ollie. More details soon.
