RapidShare Hired Lobbyists to Prove It’s Legal

RapidShare admitted that it is going on the offensive before 2011 list of the “Most Notorious” websites worldwide is compiled. Besides, it likely wants to weigh in on the suggested COICA legislation known for providing the Justice Department an expedited process for blocking domains connected to piracy.

Swiss-based cyberlocker is currently taking a page from the playbook of its rights owner critics, and has decided to hire a lobbying firm so that it could plead its case with the Congress.

As you might remember, RapidShare was put on a list of the top 6 most “notorious” unauthorized sites throughout the world, which members of the Congressional International Anti-Piracy Caucus think are used for sharing of illicit films, tracks and other copyrighted files. In respond, cyberlocker called such label “outrageous” and announced that it can’t believe the Congress would link the website to piracy. It insisted that the company only caters to its users’ legitimate interests: neither does it copy copyright-protected material, nor does the service make such material publicly accessible.

Unsurprisingly, RapidShare is still not quite happy with the label. That’s why it decided to ask for the help of lobbyists to help get it removed prior to 2011 “Piracy Watch List” is compiled. The company announced that it’s simply unfair to be included on the list. Its spokesperson pointed out that the users can’t just take a look at the number of infringing content they can find on the server. Meanwhile, he highlights, Google has millions of links to copyrighted files, but few people would say that Google is a bad company.

Cyberlocker claimed that copyrighted content makes up just 5% of the total material uploaded, but such figures make the observers suspicious if the company is actively monitoring the content stored on the server. On the other hand, courts throughout the world have ruled RapidShare isn’t responsible for files shared by its users. They only affirmed the cyberlocker’s obligation to remove infringing content after being properly notified. For example, a German court ruled that the users, and not the service itself, are the ones infringing the law and therefore guilty. Then, in the native US, the District Court also declined to issue a temporary injunction against the company over the same complaints by the Perfect 10 company.
