Under The Microscope

Win The Battle, Lose The War?

The Supreme Court issued a verdict in the so-called “Grokster” case today, as seen in many news sources. The full text of the decision is available in as a PDF file from the EFF.

Will these stop illegal P2P transfers? It’s doubtful. Will it chill innovation in other areas (such as endangered gizmos like our own Audio Hijack Pro)? It’s possible. Check out the EFF’s Grokster Reader’s Guide and keep watching the news – very little has actually been decided with this ruling today, despite the headlines.
