Kazaa Files Most Obvious Friend Of Court Brief Ever

from the what-a-surprise dept

Kazaa, who through some legal tap-dancing, has so far been able to keep themselves out of the RIAA’s lawsuit against Morpheus and Grokster, today filed what should be considered the most obvious “friend of the court” brief ever written. They’re arguing that the appeals court should uphold their earlier ruling in favor of Morpheus and Grokster, saying that peer-to-peer file sharing networks are, by themselves, perfectly legal. Since they’re basically the exact same type of company, their position is pretty obvious, and I doubt it will do much to sway the court one way or the other. They’re basically just stating what their legal argument would have been if they had been included in the lawsuit.
