Dutch Usenet Community Lost Case Against Anti-Piracy Outfit

One of the largest Usenet networks online has lost the lawsuit it launched against Dutch anti-piracy organization BREIN. The lawsuit, through which the community called FTD tried to have their operations declared legal, resulted in a court decision that prohibited the community members from posting information about locations where others can download illegal content.

FTD has been online for a decade and can boast to be The Netherlands’ largest Usenet community accounting for nearly 500,000 members. The online community and its associated software make its members able to “spot” the location of content they find on Usenet, which can contain copyrighted films, songs and TV shows.

2 years ago the Usenet portal took a Dutch anti-piracy BREIN to court, asking the judge to declare that FTD operates legally. Now the court handed out a decision appeared to be a negative one for the popular Usenet community.

Despite the fact that FTD doesn’t host or link to any infringing content, the court decided that it still provides a promotional venue for uploaders of illegal content, because they are able to post a description of the locations where this material can be downloaded. In the decision the court confirmed that Usenet portal itself didn’t break any law, nor its users were necessarily breaking any laws, and that spotting is not really illegal. Nevertheless, the very fact that uploaders of illegal material are able to “spot” such files can deem the whole system illegal. Thus, the Usenet community contributed to the uploading of content by providing the uploaders with a tool to announce their evil deed. Although only 13 of all FTD users have been identified as uploaders, it was enough for the court.

The Usenet portal was ordered to delete the “spots” of unauthorized content within a month. If FTD fails to comply, it will have to pay BREIN $20,000 a day up to a maximum of $400,000. The anti-piracy outfit welcomed the court ruling, which also stated that BREIN doesn’t have to retract its earlier statement in the media where it labelled the community as a criminal organization.

Current decision follows an earlier ruling against FTD, when last November it was found responsible for promoting the unauthorized uploading of a Dutch film.
