Grokster and Open Source: Will Open Source Force the Court to Confront Sony?

  • Corante; By Ernest Miller (Posted by dave on Jun 29, 2005 2:49 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups: GNU
What the heck does the Grokster decision mean for open source? I suspect that we are likely to find out. Up to now Hollywood has been satisfied in going after the commercial purveyors of P2P filesharing software. Undoubtedly, following the Grokster decision, they will continue to do so. However, that will not halt the use of P2P programs. As the commercial systems are shut down, it is likely that users will migrate to open source P2P projects. Indeed, a switch to various open source programs, such as BitTorrent, is already well under way.
