This ruling will also effect the architecture of P2P software. I think we
will see a lot more of the bittorrent style divergence between search
tools and services that find sources of files (legit and less-than-so) and
tools that carry out the actual transfer mechanism. Thus, a torrent
search tool/service, that does not implement even a basic filtering system
could be liable, while the actual bittorent protocol client software would
be much, much harder to go after.
