Mark Cuban has a post about the Grokster v MGM case, which from what Cuban says will decide the future of digital content. Cuban makes some great points and I hope the courts see that what they are deciding is more than just if Grokster aided piracy. But the case is about the use of digital content you own. The entertainment world wants control what we own. As Cuban says it is just like VHS. We could make multiple copies of VHS tapes if we wanted but now the big companies want to stop that option since content is digital. Check out the post, it atleast should stimulate some conversation.
