US Supreme Court Vs Smith & Wesson?

Thursday, June 30th, 2005

   Everyone on the net has heard about the recent US Supreme Court Ruling (MGM Studios Inc. et al v Grokster Ltd. et al) that went against the companies that make the file-sharing software, basically holding them accountable for the illegal actions of their users.

Justice David Souter wrote: “We hold that one who distributes a device with the object of promoting its use to infringe copyright… is liable for the resulting acts of infringement by third parties”.

Has anyone considered how this might effect gun manufacturers?
