So now a lawyer is trying to convince a court that a having a cached file on your hard drive doesn't constitute possession. (Slashdot article.)
Good luck with that. The real problem is the "possession" isn't the real issue; it's the distribution and viewing, i.e., the human-experienced message.
I wonder how long it will take us to figure out that the whole idea of possession is fatally flawed in the Internet era?
