German Court Decides Secondary Liability Issue.

Here's an interesting ruling from German courts:

A recent ruling has rejected EMI's attempt to pin secondary liability on an ISP for its users infringing. EMI had argued that the ISP, HanseNet, should be forced to use DNS blocking to stop some of its users from infringing. The court ruled against EMI's view and said that such an argument was "unprecedented." Tragically, I don't think that's quite accurate considering some other rulings in the country, but at least it's nice to see some additional good rulings on issues like secondary liability.


Any clarification of the law on the publics rights and responsibilities are always good news, its just a pity that we are continually seeing the rights of the public challenged by media monopolists who are claiming ever larger tracts of the publics cultural real estate as their own for selfish monetary gain.
