Thread: P2P (More) Legal in France

  1. #1
    A reader writes:"A french appeal court ruled yesterday in favour of somebody who downloaded about 500 movies, on the ground that those were private copies, and that he didn't redistributed them, and that a tax was payed on blank media. This sets the huge precedent that P2P is legal over there. For the details, apparently no distinction was made on the method used to download the movies (upload issues) and the famous EUCD directive was even used by the defending lawyer." You'll want the fish for this one, unless you speak French.

    That's all well and good, but before you (well, we french downloaders actually) rejoice you must know that the industry still has one last chance to have him condemned in court. :killjoy:
