The San Francisco Daily Journal quoted Jennifer Granick, executive director of the Stanford Law School Center for Internet and Society, in a story about DirecTV and piracy litigation. She "wrote an amicus brief on behalf of two admitted DirecTV hackers, asking the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold a ruling that the company sought too much in damages. Granick hopes to establish more-favorable ground rules for any future cases."

"If and when the new card is hacked, this ruling will guide DirecTV and other satellite companies and copyright holders," she said.
