EU Judge Rejects Demand for Anti-Piracy Filtering on Social Network
Interesting, I also wonder what the definition of a 'social network' is in the legal system?
More on the BBC here: BBC News - European Court of Justice blocks net-filtering bid
A social network cannot be required to install an anti-piracy filtering system, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has ruled.
Belgian music royalty collecting firm SABAM wanted the social network Netlog to stop users infringing copyright.
But the court said the filtering required would contravene rights to freedom of business, personal data and freedom of information.
