Three Strikes Rejected In Spain
from the another-one-down dept
It seems like the recording industry’s grand plan to get ISPs to be their copyright police isn’t getting very far. Consumer and legal backlash around the world seems to have stopped it cold. The latest is in Spain, where the entire concept of a three strikes regime has been taken off the table. Instead, the plan in Spain is to go after file sharing sites and services — as we’ve seen them do a lot lately. The only problem? Spanish courts have found both that personal, non-commercial file sharing is legal and that sites that are merely pointing to content are not liable for whether or not the content is infringing.
