Supreme Court To Hear File-Sharing Arguments

“The Supreme Court agreed Friday to consider whether two internet file-sharing services may be held responsible for their customers’ online swapping of copyright songs and movies. Justices will review a lower ruling in favor of Grokster and StreamCast Networks that came as a blow to recording companies and movie studios seeking to stop the illegal distribution of their works… The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled in August that file-sharing services were not responsible because they don’t have central servers pointing users to copyright material.”
