Grokster, Ye Harlot
Derek Slater, commenting on how the Recording Artists Coalition and others have responded [PDF] to the artists' brief [PDF] supporting the respondents in the Grokster case: "[The press release seems to say] Return to the flock, lest your soul be lost forever. ...It is one thing to naively think no artists consider P2P and Sony beneficial. It is quite another to consider their interests illegitimate and to act as if the artists do not know what is in their best interests, as the RAC clearly does and Ross seems to do -- it is remarkably condescending."
Update: Patrick Ross responds.
