Harvard Law School professor Charles Nesson, who leads the defense team representing alleged file-sharer Joel Tenenbaum, isn’t just taking on the record industry in court. He’s also tapping into Web 2.0 with the new Facebook group “Joel Fights Back Against RIAA.”Tenenbaum allegedly shared seven songs on Kazaa in 2004, when he was a teenager. Like around 30,000 other people targeted by the record companies, he faces the prospect of being ordered to pay as much as $150,000 per track — which in his case could amount to more than $1 million — if found liable after trial.
