Michigan’s PI Licensing Law Puts the Bite on MediaSentry

Posted by rjbiii on July 9, 2008

MediaSentry, now known as SafeNet, has been working for the RIAA to catch those the Music Industry thinks have been pirating music. Apparently the defendant in one of those cases, UMG v. Lindor, filed an administrative complaint against SafeNet, alleging that the organization has violated Michigan’s statute requiring a license for “engaging in investigations.”

Although a little out of our normal terrain, we at Post Process take note of the action, due to the concern over the possible effects of such laws on the E-Discovery and Litigation Support industry. The state agency’s letter to SafeNet is here (pdf). Some discussion of the matter can be found here.
