An Anonymous Coward writes "As early as Wednesday, the RIAA
has sent letters to the ISPs and operators of OpenNap servers in the U.S. which were
listed on Napigator. Here's the
story from ZDNET. The RIAA's letter refers to the U.S. Supreme Court decision against Napster. Given that nearly all the OpenNap servers are run by individuals who are never intending to charge for the service, this is an interesting assertion."
And HyperbolicParabaloid points out
this NYT story
(free reg. req.) in which a lawyer says the decision "validates Gnutella" (ok, whatever, but there's also some interesting discussion about how the Sony VCR time- and space-shifting precedent fails to apply to Napster).
