Fred von Lohmann, the EFF [Electronic Frontier Foundation] attorney who handled the file-sharing case, said he’d rather see the EFF battle in the courts than before Congress, noting that the judiciary can be an important place where laws get shaped.
“We have armies of lobbyists now watching in Washington and the states,” he said. “We don’t really have that in the court system where just as important laws are made.”
Pretty bad grammar for the Associated Press. But an important point from an interesting article (via Findlaw.com). I like to think that that it’s not just lobbying and caselaw that matters (we put that to rest quite some time ago), but I suspect that nitpick of mine is directed towards the hapless APer rather than the EFFer.
