Comment Re:Lawsuit is totally baseless (Score 3, Informative) 238

Doesn't matter if it's baseless and would get tossed out of court -- eventually. The former database maintainer didn't have the budget to fight back.

If you want to blame someone, blame the "justice" system that allows frivolous lawsuits to be filed in the first place.

EFF is representing Arthur D. Olson (the former database maintainer).

Comment Read more of the briefs, please (Score 4, Informative) 732

I'm glad to see that folks are talking about the CS Profs' brief -- after all, I'm the lead lawyer on that brief. '-)

But I would suggest strongly that you look at many of the other briefs available on EFF's site. Respondents' Brief (the one by StreamCast and Grokster) is the most important, and there are many high quality amicus briefs. Eben Moglen, who wrote on behalf of FSF, has some great lines in his; and there are many other excellent ones.
