High Court Agrees to Hear File-Sharing Dispute

dekashizl Re:Are glass makers at risk? (297 comments)

If I have a piece of glass and I put it in front of a copyrighted piece of work, are the glass manufacturers to be held responsible? The ISP is like the glass. How can an owner of network be held responsible for the traffic that others put on that network? If a drug runner runs drugs in a truck on the highway is the highway department responsible for providing the road?
If a terrorist smuggles a bomb onto an airplane, is the airline responsible? How about the airport? The government?

Sometimes the people who control the flow of things *are* responsible for what is actually flowing.
