I think one of the two articles is right on and the other is the work of a hack.
I found those articles by creating a Google Alert for “Jaron Lanier”. It’s how I get much of the news I find most interesting. I have subscribed to a few dozen search terms, which can be names of people, or certain phrases.
A Google search for “ottmar liebert torrent“, which returned about 11,000 hits last year, returned nearly 47,000 last week.

Not their own work, natch, but that is besides the point in their opinion…
