In MGM v. Grokster, the Court has decided, in an 83-page decision, that an injunction should be issued against Streamcast (owner of Morpheus), and that a permanent "Special Master" should be appointed to supervise compliance with the injunction.
The injunction, once it is issued, will require Streamcast "to use the most effective means available to reduce the infringing capabilities of the Morpheus System and Software, while preserving its noninfringing uses as feasible".
