Supreme Court Refuses To Hear Appeal in $222,000 File-Sharing Case
The historic case of the world’s largest recording labels versus the Minnesota mother is well known for its tortuous and extended path through the U.S. legal system.

Blip: Funny or Die is making a Steve Jobs biopic as well
If Ashton Kutcher as Steve Jobs shakes you to the (Apple) core or you can't handle the truth in Aaron Sorkin's likely walking-and-talking-heavy Jobs film, you may be delighted to hear that Funny or Die is also making a movie about the deceased Apple co-founder. As one of the icons of the tech world, it remains to be seen if Funny or Die is prepared to lampoon Jobs, although the site freely admits that script-research amounted to a quick perusal of Jobs' Wikipedia entry.
