Search, Post-Grokster

BitTorrent search engine TorrentSpy is seeking an early resolution of the secondary liability/MGM v. Grokster issues involved in a suit against it by the major studios. Defense counsel Ira Rothken's press release has more, and a link to a PDF of the motion. Mr. Rothken sums up thusly: "The MPAA is in essence trying to outlaw the dot torrent file format."
