US Supreme court hears Grokster
The US Supreme court heard the Grokster appeal this week. Is Grokster style peer-to-peer file sharing a blatantly illegal copyright theft device that ought to be banned?
Or is it merely technology that is no different than a VCR or photocopier that some people misuse, and if banned, would put a serious chill on product innovation?
I subscribe to the latter - we will have to wait and see what the court says.
