RIAA Failed To Disclose Expert's Lobbying History to "Six-Strikes" Partners

http://j.mp/TQlvwD  (Torrent Freak)

   "A month before the controversial "six strikes" anti-piracy plan goes
    live in the U.S., the responsible Center of Copyright Information
    (CCI) is dealing with a small crisis. As it turns out the RIAA failed
    to mention to its partners that the "impartial and independent"
    technology expert they retained previously lobbied for the music
    industry group. In a response to the controversy, CCI is now
    considering whether it should hire another expert to evaluate the
    anti-piracy monitoring technology."
