    It was a pro-copyright ruling that stunned nearly everyone dealing with the issue of online piracy.

    In a decision reported late Friday by CNET News.com, a federal judge in Los Angeles found that a computer server's RAM, or random-access memory, is a tangible document that can be stored and must be turned over in a lawsuit.

    If allowed to stand, the groundbreaking ruling may mean that anyone defending themselves in a civil suit could be required to turn over information in their computer's RAM hardware, which could force companies and individuals to store vast amounts of data, say technology experts.

    How much data is retained in the RAM after power off?

    Vast amounts of data doesn't even begin to describe it.... No what in hell this could stand, or else the internet would die of bankruptcy in less than a day.
