Kazaa Ruled Legal In The Netherlands
from the happy-holidays dept
Quite a day for the file sharers of the world. Not only did the Appeals Court reverse the Verizon subpoena ruling, but over in the Netherlands, a judge has ruled that Kazaa is legal. This appears to be a similar ruling to the one earlier this year in the US that found that the various file sharing systems, themselves, were only tools, and not liable for copyright infringement that happened via their networks. The recording industry will, of course, appeal.
