 European Wi-Fi Operator Found not Liable for Users’ Infringement

European Wi-Fi Operator Found not Liable for Users’ Infringement

The EU court has decided that the operator of an open Wi-Fi network can’t be held responsible for its users’ infringements. In the court case, Sony accused Pirate Party member Tobias McFadden of enabling music piracy.

Tobias McFadden runs a lighting and sound system shop in Germany and has been operating an open Wi-Fi network. 6 years ago, it caused him trouble with a major recording label, when he received a claim from Sony that his open network had been used to share music online without permission.

The copyright owner demanded McFadden to take some measures, such as password protecting the Wi-Fi network, blocking file-sharing ports, and blocking file-sharers. He was also accused of third party infringement, with the case being referred to the European Court of Justice. However, the court decided in favor of the network operator in terms of liability. At the same time, the Court ruled that providers could be required to end copyright infringement, for example by password-protecting the open Wi-Fi network and requiring users to reveal their identity before obtaining that password. Besides, the EU court rejected the notion of monitoring networks for infringement or taking more aggressive measures.

The industry experts admitted that the court ruling could complicate plans for more open access to Wi-Fi networks, as it may cause a lot of unnecessary red tape for small businesses that currently offer free Wi-Fi. The plans of the governments to offer free Wi-Fi in European cities are also affected by this ruling. Some fear that copyright enforcement might become a Trojan horse for ending online anonymity.

I would agree with that. They want to know so they can control. The free and anon sharing of ideas and knowledge is anathma to those who would control.
