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.

Perrelli, Co-Chair of Jenner & Block's Entertainment and New Media Practice Group and one of the authors of the Grokster legal brief.
