Grokster Loses Big

By Deane Barker on June 27, 2005

High court deals a blow to file-sharing services: File sharing lost big time today with the Supreme Court ruling on the Grokster case.

Internet file-sharing services will be held responsible if they intend for their customers to use software primarily to swap songs and movies illegally, the Supreme Court ruled Monday, rejecting warnings that the lawsuits will stunt growth of cool tech gadgets such as the next iPod.

I expect the folks over at Boing Boing to go bat-s**t insane any minute now. Cory Doctorow’s head might explode.
