The European Court of Justice, the highest court in the European Union, ruled that P2P filters installed by ISPs violate the European Directive on electronic commerce as well as fundamental rights. The full ruling can be accessed here. This comes as a major blow to stingy ISPs who conserve and shed bandwidth in the name of checking peer-to-peer (P2P) traffic, by somehow deeming that all P2P traffic consists of unlawful sharing of copyrighted content and software.

Wow, if there is no overturned ruling on this, this could be a huge blow for the "anti-piracy" bureaucrats who like to think they have a god given right to try and force ISP's to spy on their customers in the name of copyright, here here to that ruling may it stand up cause this is good news for everyone who believes in freedom of speech and opposes censorship!

It's nice to see a judgement in favor of open internet access from a governing body instead of "OMGWTFPIRATES"

Yeah, because the other 99% is just using its bandwidth for Facebook and kitten videos on Youtube.

Nothing is stopping the 99% from getting that bittorrent client and um...downloading the latest Fedora Linux .iso file!

SABAM (Belgium's equivalent of RIAA), which sued ISP Scarlet for not filtering P2P traffic, and in the process, facilitating copyright infringement
Great news, and I especially liked this bit. It's like suing the Highways Agency because they don't automatically block thieves in getaway cars :laugh:.

winnar!



its good to hear however, as i use torrents to trasnfer files between myself and friends all the time. its an extremely robust system that doesnt suffer dropouts/disconnects like HTTP or FTTP, and the more people who want the file, the faster it gets.
