Ahh Clint. I substantially agree with you on the circus atmosphere about this debacle. However, once again, the liberal media (I know, I hate that term, but it is entrirely apropos here, and I am referring to all media that I've read concerning this issue), has only reported some of the facts. In fact, I am astounded that in my searches over this case, I have yet to find one media source that has correctly reported this fact:
This case is about file-sharing. In fact, it's about file-sharing on a massive scale...in fact, the entire Kazaa network. Taken directly from the Order For Summary Judgment:
"The files, available to all other Kazaa users for download from the shared folder..."
Perhaps you and your staff will be so bold as to be the "first" media to report this curiously omitted, but vital fact. Media can conveniently withold facts that they deem not worthy...the Courts are not so lucky. The Order for Summary Judgment can be viewed here directly:
Understand that although Summary Judgment had been ordered several months ago, the matter has been reopened, and the defendant has been afforded a chance to reply to the motion (in a couple of weeks). So hold onto your hats folks, cuz it aint over til it's over. I must say, at first blush, this case is a slam dunk in favor of the plaintiffs.
