Guests debated the U.S. Supreme Court case on sharing music and video files over the Internet that will be heard later in the day. They also responded to telephone calls, faxes, and e-mail from viewers.

The Court was hearing oral arguments in the MGM v. Grokster case on whether online file-sharing services that allow copyrighted songs and movies to be shared over the Internet can be held liable for copyright infringement. 

Mr. Olson, representing the recording industry and the motion picture associations, filed a brief in the Grokster case on behalf of Defenders of Property Rights, who want to stop the online distribution of copyrighted works. Mr. Von Lohmann represented StreamCast Networks, makers of the peer-to-peer file sharing software known as Morpheus, and argued this case before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. close
