Piracy 1

another random user (2645241) writes "An anti-piracy group in the Netherlands, Brein, has won a landmark case, making a file-sharing site's former web host liable for damages.

A court in The Hague has found XS Networks guilty of facilitating copyright infringement by refusing to shut down a site it knew to be illegal.

The firm, which has ceased operations, used to rent its computer servers to the SumoTorrent website. The ruling could create a "dangerous precedent", said the TorrentFreak blog."

This would kill the ISP industry to the point where only corporations could host a website. That is against the spirit of the world wide web.
