Is this is a victory over piracy? Was it even about piracy? Is it a victory at all? For whom?
MP3.COM DECISION:
YOUR FEEDBACK.COM?
We Ask A Bunch Of Questions, Because We Don't Know The Answers
Regardless of our positions on the issues involved, we can all agree that today's MP3.com/RIAA ruling is historic. But we want to know how our readers feel about it. More specifically, we want your predictions, your beliefs and your ideas about the following:

● Will this mean the end of MP3.com? Will the judge impose severe damages on MP3.com, or will there simply be C&D on MyMP3.com with nominal damages?

● Why, after so much time, was there suddenly a summary judgment, but another delay before the issuing of a written decision?

● Is this is a victory over piracy? Was it even about piracy? Is it a victory at all? For whom?

● How will this likely affect (if at all) the decision in the Napster/RIAA case? How (if at all) does this case differ?

● How will the majority of online music enthusiasts respond to the decision?

● Will the record industry offer some "legitimate" variant of the disputed service?

● How will this decision be remembered five years from now?

● How do major recording acts feel about this?

● Did MP3.com make its case clearly enough? Is this simply an irreconcilable difference of opinion about the database?

● Does the judge appear to have a sufficient understanding of the technology?

● Is the database piracy or space-shifting?
