Grokster: A Chairman's Thoughts

Jason Calacanis, Chairman of Weblogs, Inc., sums up his impressions of the Grokster decision in The day entrepreneurship died (or What the Grokster case means: top entrepreneurs to flee the US): "I've heard from a number of entrepreneurs who are looking into starting companies off-shore...."

And elsewhere in the Weblogs, Inc. network, Mark Cuban writes:

The good news is that at least the SCOTUS kept the focus on how technology is marketed rather than what it does. The bad news is that the MPAA and RIAA will jump all over the slightest double technolgy entendre that any marketing blurb or item could have.

I'm not sure how companies are going to protect themselves against it.

How are companies who invest in technology going to protect themselves and their investments against it?

Meanwhile, there's also Marty Schwimmer, soothsayer: "I was advising my clients not to actively induce infringement before Grokster came out."
