Each week, Salon Technology's writers discuss the latest news in high tech. This week Katharine Mieszkowski reports on intimidation tactics used at eTown to discourage union organization and Damien Cave reports on a lawsuit filed by Fandom.com against Fandom.tv for copyright infringement.

Technology reporters from Salon appear weekly on "Beyond Computers," a Public Radio International show that airs on more than 200 stations around the country. The show explores the pervasive influence of technology on humanity -- from family, beauty and art to law, politics and the environment. On the show, our writers give their opinionated takes on the biggest technology stories of the week.
