Bad News on Grokster

Bloomberg.com: Top Worldwide “The U.S. Supreme Court bolstered the entertainment industry’s anti-piracy campaign, saying Grokster Ltd. and other Internet file-sharing networks may bear responsibility when users illegally download music and films.

The unanimous ruling today revives efforts by Time Warner Inc., Walt Disney Co. and other media companies to make those file-sharing systems block unauthorized downloads. It reverses a lower court ruling that threw out most of the industry’s copyright suit against Grokster and StreamCast Networks Inc.”
