The nub of the MGM vs Grokster case

From the Amicus brief filed by Eben Moglen on behalf of the Free Software Movement and a group called ‘New Yorkers for Fair Use’.:

“At the heart of Petitioners’ argument is an arrogant and unreasonable claim — even if made to the legislature empowered to determine such a general issue of social policy — that the Internet must be designed for the convenience of their business model, and to the extent that its design reflects other concerns, the Internet should be illegal.” Eben is not a man to mince words and he’s gone right to the heart of it.
