[dvd-announce] 2600 Magazine files for rehearing
2600 Magazine asked the full Second Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse the
November decision of a three-judge panel because the opinion conflicts with
Supreme Court precedent in a case of exceptional importance.
"Free speech principles should turn not upon newly minted distinctions
between pen-and-ink and point-and-click," lawyers from the EFF and Stanford
Law School Dean Kathleen M. Sullivan argue. Instead, speech on the
Internet demands the same high level of protection as off-line
speech. Further, the linking injunction saps the "lifeblood of the
Internet" without adequate justification.
