Morpheus Comments On RIAA And MPAA Writ Of Certiorari
Hollywood is attempting to take its war against information technology and innovation to the United States Supreme Court. Its petition for certiorari, filed with the Supreme Court today, is a doomed effort to have the High Court review and overturn the affirmative Federal Court of Appeals ruling after the three judge panel devoted a considerable amount of time and attention to reviewing the law and the evidence and concluded with a unanimous decision in favor of StreamCast.
"It is our belief that there is no need for the Supreme Court to review the matter. We believe that Judge Wilson's ruling, as well as that of the Judges in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals affirming the ruling, was based on a thorough examination of the factual evidence and legal arguments presented in the case," stated Michael Weiss, CEO of StreamCast Networks, developer of the Morpheus peer-to-peer software. "The plaintiff's petition today is an indictment against the Supreme Court's 1984 Betamax decision itself. The law is clear and has already been decided.
No matter how many more hired gun attorneys they bring in to the case, the rhetoric of the RIAA and the MPAA, calling anyone who disagrees with them a åbad actor,' rings hollow. Companies such as StreamCast are the innovators in the science of peer-to-peer search and file sharing and are responsible for advancing the technology forward, as demonstrated by StreamCast's release this week of Morpheus with NEOnet."
