Morpheus asks judge to drop case

Attorneys for peer-to-peer company StreamCast Networks are asking a judge to resolve their court case quickly in their favor.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation filed a motion for summary judgment in federal court in Los Angeles on Monday, urging the judge to drop the entertainment industry's case against StreamCast Networks, saying the company's Morpheus file-sharing network shouldn't be thwarted because it has uses that don't violate copyrights. The entertainment industry has sued StreamCast, arguing its file-sharing service allows people to steal copyrighted works. Arguments on the matter are scheduled for Dec. 2.
