First MGM v. Grokster Brief

The Video Software Dealers Association filed a "friend of the court" brief (PDF) with the United States Supreme Court on January 21, 2005 in the MGM v. Grokster case.

According to the VSDA Position Statement:

VSDA argued that courts should not turn a "blind eye" to the rampant copyright infringement that occurs over peer-to-peer file swapping services. VSDA's position supported its call for the Supreme Court to reverse the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in the MGM Studios v. Grokster (PDF) case.
