Internetbackbones aangeklaagt door platenmaatschappijen

Posted on Monday, August 19 2002 @ 15:40:49 CEST by

Diverse Amerikaanse backbone ISP's zijn aangeklaagt door platenmaatschappijen, ze worden er van beschuldigd de illegale muziekverspreiding te vermakkelijken door gebruikers toegang te geven tot de website listen4ever.com

Listen4ever.com, die gehost is in China, zou volgens , de platenmaatschappijen gericht zijn aan Amerikanen en zich enkel en alleen in China bevinden om zo de copyright-wetgeving te omzeilen. De identiteit van de eigenaars zouden ze niet kunnen achterhalen hebben en daarom klagen ze de backbones aan, zodat deze de site zouden blokkeren, wat tot een storm van protesten heeft geleid omdat dit de censuur op internet zou kunnen doen toenemen

According to the suit the artists whose works are being unlawfully copied and distributed through Listen4ever are: Christina Aguilera, Bruce Springsteen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eric Clapton, Barbara Streisand, Lenny Kravitz and Whitney Houston.

Chinese muziek is op de site echter niet te vinden :
The suit states that despite Listen4ever's connections to China, the site uses a U.S. domain name, is written entirely in English, appears to target an American audience by focusing on U.S. works and does not appear to feature Chinese music.

"Listen4ever has clearly located itself in China to avoid the ambit of United States copyright law," the suit said.
