I know this is somewhat old news, but how many other people think this is just a crock.
I cant believe the courts ruled that companies that make file sharing programs can be held liable. If they are going to do this to file sharing companies, they better do it too all companies.
Gun companies should then be liable if someone kills another person with a gun.
Car manufacturers should be liable for people that are reckless and kill people with thier cars.
Big business has got its hands into too many places and this is starting to get carried away.
Plus, I think if anyone should be sued its the music companies. Take sony for example. They do music, movies, and cd burners. When you buy there cd burners they give you software to rip your music cd's to MP3's. But on there cd's they put copy protection that makes it so you cant copy them. But legally a person can make a backup copy of there cd's and music for personal use only. But that is impossable so you have to go online and find someone else that has already made a copy of it and when you download it you are breaking the law and could be sued.
Get some people to rule on this stuff that knows what they are talking about.
I think its time to write my senator again. Argh!
