Grokster Cleared in MGM Lawsuit, Big Implication for File Sharers

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) won a preliminary ruling today against MGM studios and several other major Holywood players in their lawsuit against Grokster. If the ruling is upheld, it sets a precedent that file sharing programs such as Grokster, Kazaa, Morpheus, etc. cannot be held responsible for the content on their networks. This ruling will have a huge positive effect on the future of filesharing in general.
