The ruling asserts that the distribution of file-sharing software is legal because the product is capable of "substantial non-infringing uses", and because StreamCast, which produces the Morpheus software, cannot control the various uses that end users make of the software.

It just means that the creator of the software is safe. But if you start using the software for illegal uses, you can still get in trouble.

I think some of you misses how huge this rulling is.

Read the entire Text and precisely, read the judge comment at the end. His words could be used in future rulling ! People + 1, RIAA - 1000.

Hopefully the RIAA just starts going after more end users.

As if the intelligent stopped (or never started) using Morpheus because of legal issues...
