Copyfighting

More goodness today via BoingBoing:

A diary entry on DailyKos by RadicalRuss nails the hypocrisy of the Grokster case in comparing it to the gun industry.

This is a must read.

From the story:

Got that? If a company makes a product that is inappropriately used to illegally copy a movie, that company is liable. If a company makes a product that is inappropriately used to illegally kill a human, that company is not liable. What’s the common logic holding these disparate concepts together? Massive corporate special interest money. Welcome to your government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations, where a pirated copy of “Hollywood Homicide”* is bigger threat than an actual Hollywood homicide.
