Entertainment Industry Appeals Grokster

from the yeah,-we-knew-that dept

As if it’s even worth mentioning… After losing rounds one and two in the lawsuit over Grokster and Morpheus, the entertainment industry is now appealing to the Supreme Court. This is probably a good thing. The Supreme Court may simply decline the case, letting the lower court ruling stand (which would be good), or they may take it, and attempt to reconcile the decision with some other decisions in similar cases (such as the Aimster case). Either way, it will settle the matter, and let people move on to actually innovating again, rather than having to wait for the industry to sue them again.
