Posted on Thursday, March 31 2005 @ 22:07 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Currently a case is going on between the recording industry and file sharing service Grokster. MGM claims that p2p programs yearly cost the recording industry many billions of dollar by allowing users to steal copyrighted material.
"The outcome of this case is tremendously important to not only the entertainment industry, but all copyright owners. A favorable decision will help to ensure that authors and copyright owners can protect their creative works in the digital world," said Thomas J. Perrelli, Co-Chair of Jenner & Block's Entertainment and New Media Practice Group and one of the authors of the Grokster legal brief.
