Taiwan Declares File Sharing App Illegal
from the not-just-in-sweden dept
While everyone's been focused on The Pirate Bay trial in Sweden, who knew something similar was happening in Taiwan? Michael Scott points us to the news that a Taiwanese court has found the file sharing app Foxy to be illegal. There's not much in the way of details, other than to suggest that the company behind Foxy has shut down. The report also notes that some other file sharing services in Taiwan have been sued -- but one was "cleared of charges because it merely provided a way to transfer information, images, videos and text." Isn't that what most file sharing apps do?
