Norwegian student condemned for linking to MP3s

Posted on Sunday, January 30 2005 @ 02:12:55 CET by

A Norwegian student who linked to about 170 MP3 files on his website has been condemned by the Norwegian supreme court.

The young man did not host the files on his webspace, he just linked to files on other sites.
While a lower court had decided that the student, whose name was not published by the supreme court ruling, had violated copyright, an appeal court later overturned the decision, ruling that the copyright violation had occurred when others posted the mp3 files, not when he linked to them.

However, the supreme court disagreed, finding that the student was abetting piracy and has ordered the defendant to pay record labels €12,200 in compensation.
