As the legal wranglings over file sharing continue to move through court systems around the globe, Intel has thrown its weight behind the people who create P2P networks, according to this piece in the San Jose Mercury News.
The reason: Intel – along with a cadre of other tech-based business – fear that giving the entertainment industries (which derive their worth, oddly, from other peoples’ work) final say over innovations would ultimately cripple the R&D side of business.
This on the eve of the Supreme Court’s March 29 hearing to determine whether Grokster and StreamCast Networks, who run the Morpheus network, can be held liable for how users deploy the P2P technology.
Truthfully, though, it’s probably an uneasy alliance for Intel because of the friction it creates with companies that have aligned with the entertainment industries.
