From "High Court Divided in Grokster Case": "But the Court was clearly divided, with several justices expressing frustration over the dearth of factual findings about the magnitude of copyright infringement in the case. The fact that the dispute was appealed only after a summary judgment ruling in favor of Grokster made it appear possible that the Court might put off a ruling by remanding it to lower courts to develop the record."The AP has this report on the Grokster case. Finally, InternetNews.com reads the tea leaves here.
From "In Broadband Case, Justices Seem Attuned to Internet Services' Arguments": "Though the Bush administration and the cable industry made a strong argument for deference, the justices seemed surprisingly receptive to arguments by Internet services that are seeking access to cable lines in the same way that phone companies have to give access to competitors."

Looks like one Washington Post columnist hasn't joined either the RIAA or the Grokster bandwagons.
You can read Robert MacMillan's take on the Grokster case in "No Sympathy For the Devils ." From the article: "Ordinary people, the people who don't know the ins and outs of the case beyond the top-of-the-hour headlines on their news radio station, can be forgiven for being baffled. It's a complicated topic and both sides produce their share of smoke that gets in our eyes. But here's the gist: If you blow away that smoke, you're left with the realization that few of the debate's participants stand on firm moral ground."

Audi has been partial to the prefix A, with the A3, A4 and other models. But it recently announced plans to market SUVs named the Q7 and Q5 between 2006 and 2009.Marty has more.
That prompted Nissan to file a lawsuit in federal court Tuesday. It says Audi's use of Q "is likely to cause confusion, deception or mistake among customers."
