Last week marked the one year anniversary of the Supreme Court's ruling in MGM v. Grokster. Eric Goldman looks at the aftermath: Happy (?) Anniversary, Grokster v. MGM: "So, in the past year since Grokster, what has changed? Arguably, nothing. People still get digital content through a combination of paid offerings and free file sharing, which continues to be a major online activity. Content owners are still suing file sharers and demanding new laws from Congress. Entrepreneurs are still looking for ways to mediate relationships between content owners and consumers."
The Seattle Times looks back on the past year and reports Illegal file sharing showing no letup: "But the ruling hasn't stopped the lawsuits and acrimony between the two sides. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) continues to sue tech companies. And in the past year, it filed some 6,000 suits against individuals it says are stealing material."
