A LANDMARK ruling down under means that if people link to a page with copyrighted material they could be sued for piracy.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, an Aussie Federal Court upheld a ruling against Stephen Cooper, who ran a site called pp3s4free.net for providing a search engine to enable the illegal downloading of music MP3s.
Also in the dock was his ISP, E-Talk, which had made no efforts to take the site down after it was requested to do so. The court decided that it was making money off the site by running advertisements.
Sabiene Heindl, general manager of Music Industry Piracy Investigations (MIPI) said the decision meant that anyone who stuck a link on MySpace or on their bogs could now expect a knock on the door from its briefs.
