http://www.downloadsquad.com – An appeals court in Tampa, Florida has found porn produced in California to be illegal. In other words, because (legal) porn made in California was available for download in Florida, the producer broke the law. If you're like me, you're probably a little worried about what you've uploaded to the Internet over the years -- can I be extradited to Florida for a home video of my girlfriend and I? It's not the Supreme Court, but it's still more than a little frackin' scary. The question of 'Internet jurisdiction' has been problematically pondered for years -- cases have been and gone, courts have ruled all over the spectrum, but an authoritative stance has yet to emerge. Can we ever hope for a finite, definite ruling on Internet jurisdiction -- or will judges continue playing hopscotch until an international 'Internet court' is created?
