|Title:||An Analysis of the Theory of Contributory Infringement|
|Abstract:||The paper deals with contributory infringement of copyright which has recently been highlighted in various litigations involving P2P technology, one of the latest being the MGM v Grokster case. A comparison of this case with the Sony and Napster cases reveals a contradiction in the decisions taken by the US Supreme court. The pro-right holder decision in the Grokster case may curb innovators and tilt the balance between the conflicting interests of protection and innovation.|
