Library Associations Back P2P Companies in Upcoming Case

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on September 26, 2003

According to Declan McCullagh, the Amerian Library Association (ALA) planned to file an amicus brief today (9th Circuit Court of Appeals), contending that file sharing companies Streamcast Networks and Grokster should not be forced to close down. The ALA was joined by the Association of Research Libraries, the American Association of Law Libraries, the Medical Library Association and the Special Libraries Association.
