A dark day for all of us

Yes, I am talking about this, http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-9991451-93.html?tag=nefd.top

Apparently Glider lost the legal battle on copy right?!! So the judge ruled that examing another program is in violation of copy right.

Does that mean the end of zoloFighter? A detailed check on US copy right law, it appears to be that the Glider defense team is making the wrong judgment. The team is defend the work based on section 117, which is assuming Glider is copying the program, while in fact (at least for zoloFighter) nothing is copied, and nothing is modified (unlike other hacks).

So at least for now zoloFighter will continue on, and I hope Glider defend team will pick up some steam.
