This shouldn't have happened

Just when this country needed more innovation we have this decision.  This will affect the way technology companies market their wares:

"clear expression or other affirmative steps taken to foster infringement"

So next time you use photo-copier, publisher can potentially take Xerox to the court. Well if Xerox marketing pitches like - "go ahead, remix your own book !".

Pitch doctors will have to go through legal blessings each time they put a new slogan or message. More cost and more conservative approach = bad business.

This shouldn't have happened. Grokster's loss is a big big loss to US innovation machine in the time when flat world is putting fire from the bottom.

Add some more legal cost to your business instead of putting money in the R&D. Thats a new ruling.
