BoingBoing has the most complete link rundown so far. My initial reaction was: "OK, now I know for certain that the Supreme Court is a bunch of hacks whose judgment gets warped by proximity to monied interests." However, the full picture, as Copyfight points out, may be more nuanced than that. I'll reserve judgment till I see how the legal community reacts.
UPDATE(S) (28 June): More links...
- Ed Felten has some very believable predictions for the future, and notes on the Supreme Court's odd ideas about acceptable business models for software companies.
- Nathan Newman sees a parallel between this case and the Ten Commandments case.
- USACM (the policy arm of the nation's premier computer science professional organization) has a press release on its blog. They seem relatively pleased, since the ruling appears to leave technologists per se in the clear.
- Eric Goldman's big link roundup
- Copyfight has many, many posts, all interesting:
- Fred von Lohmann: "Supreme Court Sows Uncertainty"
- Ernest Miller on: RIAA/MPAA press conference, plus yet another link roundup, plus notes on the possible future of open source and Sony.
- BoingBoing: Grokster press conference audio
