+ - Files in P2P Shared Folders Equales Distribution

Submitted by vldragon
vldragon (981127) writes "The RIAA had a major win in their "sue everyone" campaign. A federal judge ruled that merely making files available for download is the same a distribution and thus copyright infringement.

From the Article: "In an decision delivered in October and first reported over the weekend, Judge Ann Aiken found that making songs available for download via a P2P application such as Kazaa is equivalent to distributing the files and forms a sufficient basis for a claim of copyright infringement, the first time that a judge has made such a ruling in a file-sharing case.""
