Streamcast and Grokster File Brief in MGM v. Grokster

Streamcast Networks (the owners of Morpheus) have submitted their brief, with the aid of the EFF.  Grokster has submitted its brief, too.  Choice quote from the latter:

“Appellants note, repeatedly, that Grokster includes a primitive ‘adult content’ filter that can block searches that contain words that are associated with such content a la George Carlin’s “seven dirty words” list, and then claim that this is evidence of the practicality of copyright filtering. This is akin to claiming that one’s ability to light a campfire is proof of one’s ability to build a nuclear power plant.”
