The law, it is oft observed, *is* an ass; and yet I think that IOS/Morpheus and other more robust (than previous) distributed computing and file sharing systems are getting to the point that courts and legislators will have to realize that punishing file sharing services merely because they can be used to distribute illegal materials (as well as others) is like punishing the Post Office because people might send illegally acquired materials through the mail.
