Good News for European Pirates
Do you live in the European Union? Do you share copyrighted music or other files over the Internet illegally? Congratulations! You can keep pirating that music without having to worry about your Internet service provider monitoring your file sharing activity and filtering out the illegal data. The highest court in the EU ruled this past week that Internet service providers cannot be required to police their own consumers’ use of the Web by applying over-inclusive filters for an indefinite period of time at the provider’s expense. So just like Captain Jack Sparrow, you may have once again escaped the authorities . . . for now.
