Considering the rather large brawl we had on this list (which seems to
be mercifully dead, although I hope I'm not prodding it back to life
here), I thought you guys might want to see these news articles from
Wired News on the apparent end of the matter

Etoys dropped the suit apparently. What remains to be seen is what
actually caused them to do so and if the actions of RTmark had anything
to do with it.

So what do you guys think? What is the fallout and implications in the
long term for hacktivism for this? Any at all?
