  1. “Only the strongest and most convincing and legally sound start-ups are going to get off the ground in US”

    That’s a good thing??

  2. That’s a good thing??

    ‘Good’ is relative. If a side effects is a greater balance of power in the technology industry, and we start seeing riskier and more exciting ideas cropping out of places like India, Signapore, etc at the expense of American industry, would you consider that ‘bad’?

    American innovation is not the panacea for the world’s woes.

  3. The best ideas have often come from people on the fringes who have no real concern with legal ramifications, anyway. The Grokster ruling will not chill innovation, but it may chill the ability to raise 10 of millions quickly for the “next big thing.” The gap between big economic interest and innovation will continue to widen and that is probably a good thing.

  4. >> sets a very high standard for digital life related start-ups

    I agree with this statement. Someday, P2P technology will be imbedded into a legitimate business plan that will work for both television content owners and consumers.

    The consumer benefit of a legitimate business is two-fold: (1) the quality of the video will be high and (2) the stability of the provider will help guarantee widespread adaption. Not to mention that stable business sectors spawn competition and help drive down prices.
