WASHINGTON - The mostly silver-haired Supreme Court debated the file-swapping, instant-messaging world of the justices' grandchildren Tuesday, openly worrying that allowing lawsuits to protect Internet movie and music rights could stunt development of the next iPod or other cool high-tech gadget.

... for me.. no one can control the power of internet. it depends on how adults and educated individual teaches others (especially children) on how to use it right and being responsible... it's like how we were thought of about a "gun", "drugs" and other good things that only turns bad when it's abused.

Tools are just simply that, you can use a spade to knock someone over the back of the head, does that mean that the manufacture should be sued? Surely murder is worse then a copyright infringement.

I think they're just exhuasting some of the stupidier routes by trying to take the head, but the trouble is there is no head, file-sharing goes on through instant messengers, through P2P software, through FTP, through bit-torrents, the odds are always against them.
