Grokster Shuts Down

Grokster Shuts Down -- After June's Supreme Court decision declaring that Grokster (along with StreamCast Networks and Sharman Networks) were responsible for copyright infringements that occurred as a result of using the companies' peer-to-peer file sharing software, Grokster's network has shut down. (See "P2P Takes a Licking but Keeps on Ticking" in TidBITS-786 for a look at the underlying issues.) The Grokster Web site now provides a brief (and quite funny) statement about the situation, noting in part, "There are legal services for downloading music and movies. This service is not one of them." The site also promises that Grokster will return as a legal service - we're not holding our breath, not that it was ever relevant to Mac users anyway. [ACE]
