Supreme Court to hear MGM v. Grokster

The Supreme Court agreed on December 10, 2004 to consider whether two Internet file-sharing services may be held responsible for their customers' online swapping of copyrighted songs and movies.

Justices will review a 9th Circuit decision in favor of Grokster Ltd. and StreamCast Networks Inc., which came as a blow to recording companies and movie studios seeking to stop the illegal distribution of their works.
