Posting Reveals Bar Questions

" The National Conference of Bar Examiners is hunting for the
anonymous person who published 41 questions from the 2006 Multistate
Bar Examination on an Internet blog within hours of taking the exam
last year.

" The conference -- which develops and distributes the national
portion of the biannual bar exam, called the MBE -- asserts in federal
court documents that whoever posted the questions on infringed the MBE copyright and
disregarded instructions that prohibit exam-takers from disclosing
exam questions and answers. ... " In a letter to EarthLink's legal
department that was attached to the subpoena, Fulbright & Jaworski
senior associate Caroline M. Mew stated that the firm has already
successfully subpoenaed Google, from which it obtained the Internet
protocol address of the blogger, and has identified the blogger's
server as EarthLink.
