I MUST HURRY YOU: Both sides in the Corporate Music versus File Sharers case are pushing the judge to make a swift decision, in their own favours, of course. Kazaa and the others are relying on the precedent that allowed Betamax to carry on making video machines on the grounds that they had other uses than just copyright-thieving ones; while the music industry believe they've got a cast-iron case because, you know, they're just encouraging kids to make a mockery of the law and all.
