Submission + - 3-strikes law cancelled in Ireland (bbc.co.uk)

AliasMarlowe writes: The High Court in Ireland has essentially gutted the "Three Strikes" style laws passed in that country. To the dismay of media companies, the Court ruled in a case pitting an ISP (UPC, which initiated the action) against the media companies that a law cutting off file sharers was contrary to EU legislation, and could not be enforced. Other ISPs in Ireland may review their 3-strikes policies, although the biggest, Eircom, says it has not actually cut anyone off.
