    Definitely worth a read and thought on the possible implications of this.

    One nice benefit will be the anger raised by this ruling at 46 Attorney Generals offices. You can bet they'll turn up the heat now on the FTC and their own laws to run the adware/spyware P2P bundlers out of business or face criminal charges.

    "The decision came nearly two weeks after attorneys general from 45 states sent letters to seven companies that offer online file-sharing software, including Grokster and Streamcast, hinting at possible legal consequences if the networks don't better inform computer users about potential copyright violations from sharing files.

    The attorneys general asked the companies to improve how they inform those who use their software about potential legal and security risks associated with file-sharing, which include being sued for copyright infringement, identity theft, and unwittingly being exposed to pornography, computer viruses and spyware."

    But the issue was not spyware, adaware, etc. It was about multiuse, non-centralized technology. It was a good ruling, if it went down, ftp clients would be up next.
