[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.
