The Web site Digg - where people get to submit links to articles and blog items that they think others should pay attention to - has been involved in a hailstorm of controversy this week over its initial adherence and eventual rejection of a legal notice from a movie industry anti-piracy group...

But Fred Von Lohmann, intellectual property attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, doesn't think there's much chance that Digg will "die" as a result of the decision.

"It's very unlikely that the AACS is going to sue Digg over this," he said in an interview.
