I recently posted about the use of the term "music piracy" in a criminal copyright infringement proceeding here.
The Tech Dirt Blog reports that the defendant Adil Cassim was acquitted by the jury and joins in the debate about the term "music piracy".
Cassim was allegedly part of "Rabid Neurosis" - group that allegedly ripped sound recordings prerelease. More from Billboard.biz here.
