Fisking Grokster

Posted By on Wed, Jun 29, 2005 at 7:21 AM

I know the Supreme Court's recent MGM V Grokster opinion is ruffling feathers out there in Internet land. And I'd like to talk about why, I really would, but it's just too freaking hot. And I'm exhausted — I just spent the last week or so immersed in the virtual underworld of online gambling, and I need a breather. Actually, I need to go swimming, which I think I might do now.

If you'd rather sit in front of your computer pondering what the Supremes have decided about  copyright law and filesharing,  check out The Pages Within , where Greg Sampson, Vermont Law School student (and paramour of Jessamyn ) dissects the ruling. He writes about it here , here , and here .

You might like The Pages Within so much that you'll want to vote it Best Vermont Blog. Or not.

  • Turning Point Center Fights Addiction With Crafts and Community

    Burlington's Turning Point Center is a refuge for Vermonters who are trying to find their way out of drug dependence. In the stairwell leading to the center, a mural depicts a giant hand reaching down to a solitary slouching figure. Just outside the center's door at the top of the stairs, is another message: "You are no longer alone."
