Next step in the Perfect 10 suit against Google

Recently, adult publisher Perfect 10 sued Google for copyright
infringement.  (I posted a lightly redacted version of the complaint along with an early analysis of the lawsuit, here).  Now, word is that
Perfect 10 has asked the judge for a preliminary injunction against Google.  Perfect 10 has also sued Amazon.com.

These lawsuits, along with similar claims by AFP, are a big deal in
terms of how they come out.  I believe them to be a bad
idea.  The outcome of this class of lawsuits, based on
intellectual property laws, against general-purpose ervice providers
like search engines, could have a huge impact on the development of the
web.  File it also along with the Grokster and related cases that
have big  potential consequences for innovation.
