I don’t want to go into patents and why they are bad for software development. I think there is enough info on the web already. Just some piece of might be related news.

Today the US Supreme Court held Grokster responsible for the bad things their clients do with their software. From now on everyone who make software that has the possibility to share illegal files is responsible for their clients. How’s about a net share here?

More infos can be found here [an interview with one of the EFF attorneys], here [slashdot] here [boingboing] and here [spiegel.de].
