If you've not heard already, the case Grokster vs MGM was yesterday won by MGM. Yep you heard right MGM won and Grokster lost. I was stunned when I first heard about it yesterday, this case has been going on for so long I almost forgot about the case when Ben from Work came over and told me, I asked which case? But yeah soon after my smile turned down on its self as I realised what this mean. Its best explained by others, so heres some of the best comments about the future of innovation. Boy am I glad not to live in states, its just a shame this will now spread like wildfire to other western markets such as europe.
