The cease and desist order in Massachusetts, which MediaSentry may have been violating, is now available online

We have obtained a copy of the cease and desist order issued by the Massachusetts State Police on January 2, 2008, against SafeNet/MediaSentry. We have also received at least one report that they continued their unlicensed investigation after receipt of the order.

January 2, 2008, cease and desist letter*

I have linked this to my blog, and have typed up the cease and desist (for those who are interested) with links to the Massachusetts statues that they mentioned, just to save people some time. I wonder if this would affect the Grokster ruling/open a new appeal?
