Today marks a very important victory in the P2P battles. Grokster has won its case in the 9th District Court of Appeals. The government may just be starting to understand this whole software deal. The ruling provides that de-centralized software that has legitimate uses should not be held accountable for the illegitimate uses. I haven’t had the chance to read through all of the information starting to pour in, but Boing Boing has a short write-up and Andrew Raff gives us a nice breakdown of the meaning. Hopefully this points to more sensible legislature down the road.
