    2600 Magazine asked the full Second Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse the November decision of a three-judge panel because the opinion conflicts with Supreme Court precedent in a case of exceptional importance.
     "Free speech principles should turn not upon newly minted distinctions between pen-and-ink and point-and-click," lawyers from the EFF and Stanford Law School Dean Kathleen M. Sullivan argue.  Instead, speech on the Internet demands the same high level of protection as off-line speech.  Further, the linking injunction saps the "lifeblood of the Internet" without adequate justification.
