Delwin Olivan is an 18-year-old Princeton student who is being extorted
by the RIAA to the tune of $5,000 as punishment for being caught
promoting music by sharing it on the Internet.
His fellow Princetonians
have founded the Free Delwin group, which is fundraising to help pay
off his settlement. It’s a goddamned shame that the money they raise
will end up going to the music mafiyeh, but it’s heartening to see
students pulling together to save one of their own, and it sure does
make the music industry look like a pack of bullies.
