File Sharing a Marketplace Win
"Not more than an hour after the Supreme Court ruled last week against a pair of file-sharing software companies, Hilary Rosen, the former head of the Recording Industry Association of America, had this to say on her Web log at The Huffington Post:
"’Wow. We won big. Unanimous. That doesn’t happen very often,’ she wrote. ‘I was right. Winning is a big psychological lift.’
"And yet, she was not sanguine about the future. ‘Knowing we were right legally really still isn’t the same thing as being right in the real world,’ she wrote.
