STUDENT ACTIVISTS POST E-VOTING MEMOS ON COLLEGE WEB SITE
In a case that has drawn national attention, Swarthmore student-activists Nelson Pavlosky ’06 and Luke Smith ’06 have reposted on the College’s Web server internal memos from Diebold Inc. that call attention to problems with the company’s electronic voting machines. The Ohio-based company had initially forced the students to remove the memos from the Web, citing the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, but Smith and Pavlosky successfully challenged the company through a provision in the copyright law. The memos went back up on the College’s network–with the administration’s blessing–the last week of November.
