TV Site Was Sued For Linking To Legal Videos

TV Site Was Sued For Linking To Legal Videos

Since there’re thousands of websites out there providing links to video files on the web, it’s becoming a usual thing for them to be threatened by copyright owners when linking to illegal content. Meanwhile, things seem to get tougher as online services are now being sued for linking to even legal material provided by official sources.

LiveMovies.gr is an ordinary website dedicated to listings of TV-shows and films. However, unlike many websites offering links to torrents or other illegal sources of content, LiveMovies offers a database and links to TV-shows streamed by their official legal providers. Nevertheless, it didn’t help them avoid ubiquitous copyright litigation.

According to the admins of LiveMovies, the Greek Society for the Protection of Intellectual Property called AEPI is suing the website for “illegally making available” material they didn’t have the right to. Despite the fact that the website operators explained to the copyright outfit that LiveMovies.gr doesn’t present content to the public anyway, but rather offers information about the content, AEPI still launched a lawsuit against the service. The outfit claimed that it has suffered damages of 10,000 Euros per each unauthorized act and launched a preliminary felony process. It seems that the AEPI can’t grasp that in accordance with both international and local legislation, offering links to the official website of a TV station is not considered as presenting content to the public, but just transmitting data relevant to the content in question. Instead, the AEPI insists that any site user can only upload links to official TV website with the explicit authorization of the outfit!

Unsurprisingly, the copyright outfit can’t provide any single judicial decision in its support. However, the team of LiveMovies is taking this attack seriously, pressing charges against AEPI in response. Among the accusations there are fraud and perjury. In addition, they even reported the case to the Ministry of Culture and asked for the solidarity of public opinion. The website operators insist that the copyright outfit should finally realize that we live in an information society where creative content coexists with other basic rights.

TheFearAgenda avatarYeah this is just plain dumb. I hope they get sued like mad for screwing with LiveMovies. I'm going to go sue google for allowing me to find things too easily. I don't care if it's legal or not. I shouldn't be able to find it!
