Microsoft Helps Digg?

As everyone who is half awake knows, there’s a great deal of fuss going on about the publication of a key associated with HD-DVD. You might, however, be less aware of what seems to me to be a rather astonishing decision in the Supreme Court in favour of Microsoft (v. AT&T). My (admittedly non-lawyerly) understanding of this is that the Supreme Court said that Microsoft was not liable for inducing infringement by sending master disks to overseas distributors containing infringing code.

Better legal minds than mine say that this casts doubt on the illegality of posting the HD-DVD key.
