Roberts May Be Good For Technology

Roberts May Be Good For Technology. By nat

A CIO Magazine blog entry
points out that John Roberts understood Internet technology when he was
an attorney and a judge. Whatever the other political angles (and
please, no comments about non-technological politics), I like that we
have a Chief Justice who believes (and has ruled that) “if someone
exposes a file through a peer-to-peer network, that person is not
culpable for that file being used illegally”. If only we'd had that
philosophy ruling on the Grokster case ..  [O'Reilly Radar]
