Hollywood Docket: A deal to end net neutrality?; LimeWire court date; DiCaprio vs. attacker

Thu Aug 05, 2010 @ 09:30AM PST
  • Google is nearing an agreement with Verizon, one of the nation's leading ISPs, for a plan to charge consumers higher rates for quicker connections. The plan flies in the face of consumer advocates who want "net neutrality," but an appeals court decision last April restricted the FCC's ability to regulate. [NYT]
  • A date to determine the damages that LimeWire must pay record labels for copyright infringement has been set for January 18, 2011. [Digital Music News]
  • France's plan to punish repeat offenders of copyright rules is getting attention over its implementation. According to one government proposal, French Internet users may soon be asked to install spyware to track their surfing habits. [NewTeeVee]
  • Ke$ha has answered a $14 million lawsuit by her former management company, saying that she was within her legal rights to fire DAS Communications in 2008. [TMZ]
  • A woman accused of slashing Leonardo DiCaprio in the face with a beer bottle in 2005 was ordered to stay at least 500 yards away from the actor. Out of bottle-throwing range, we guess. [Reuters]
