facebook: violation of copyright

Earlier this year, we had trouble understanding Facebook’s reasoning for suing Power.com, a site that tried to aggregate a variety of social network sites into a single interface (something that seems rather useful). However, Facebook insisted that it violated its copyright, and in a slightly troubling ruling in the case, the judge seemed to find that any scraping could be copyright infringement, even if the scraping was just to get at non-infringing content. The court’s argument was that in order to get at the non-infringing content, you first have to scrape the infringing content too.
