Damn. I Guess They Didn't Get It After All

well, this really ruined my day.

i was hoping that for once, the legal system in this country would come through and do what was right, instead of what a bunch of large corporations with deep pockets tell them to do, but i guess that was too much to hope for.

and yes, i know that the issues involved are not that simple, and that there are good reasons for the court to rule this way even if the justices don't particularly like the law, but it sure as hell feels like they just caved in to disney and time warner and all the other large copyright holders. it tells us that if you've got enough money you can work the system any fucking way you want, and that the little guys opinion just doesn't matter in the long run.
