Court legalized P2P

    For the first time, the court clearly stated that P2P does not violate any rights. This process began the Spanish court.
    “P2P networks, as a means of transferring data between users, do not violate any rights protected by intellectual property law,” said Raul N. García Orejudo, judge in Barcelona. Although some actions are prohibited, this does not apply to P2P, he said, noting that there should be a presumption of innocence.

    On intellectual property, the court stated:
    “Adding a work or video recording to an eMule that has been previously converted to a compatible computer file is not an act of reproduction,” adding to this, “Copying is not a profit or collective use [such as a store display], these two terms refer to the subsequent use of the work previously downloaded after copying. "
