+ - New trial possible in Minnesota music-sharing case->

Submitted by Enlarged to Show Tex
Enlarged to Show Tex (911413) writes "The judge in a landmark file-sharing case in Brainerd, Minnesota may grant a new trial based on a determination that he incorrectly instructed the jury on what constitutes what is considered to be illegal file-sharing. Apparently, simply uploading songs to a file-sharing network may not be enough to constitute a copyright violation on her part, and appears to run contrary to precedent in the Eighth Judicial Circuit. Interested parties can submit amicus curiae briefs no later than 29 May — NewYorkCountryLawyer, perhaps?"
