German Court Allowed Pirate Site Blockades

The German Supreme Court delivered a landmark decision, which paves the way for ISP blockades of copyright infringing domains. According to the latest court ruling, the ISPs can be required to block websites if the rights owners fail to identify their operators or hosting providers.

It has been a while that domain name blocking became popular across the content industries as a method to curb online copyright infringement. It was not a secret that blocking requests from the entertaining industry have been widespread all over Europe, but until now Germany stood on the sidelines.

However, this situation may soon change, since the recent landmark ruling of the German Supreme Court allowed pirate site blockades. The case started 7 years ago, when German music rights group GEMA found its music on major file-hosting services being distributed via the linking site named 3DL.am. The group tried to contact 3DL’s operators to solve the problem of copyright infringement but received no response. This is when GEMA tried another tactic: it filed a subsequent complaint and GEMA demanded that in order to reduce further violation of the law, the largest German ISP should technically block its subscribers from accessing 3DL.am.

However, the Internet service provider refused, claiming that it was just an intermediary and had nothing to do with the infringement on the website. Moreover, the ISP was sure that blocking one site would lead to similar demands. In the meantime, the website Goldesel.to was sued over similar charges, and both cases eventually ended up at the Supreme Court, which ruled as follows.

The court argued that an ISP blockade was warranted if the rights owners have tried all other means to identify the operators or hosting providers of the infringing services. While everyone knows that domain blockades are ineffective, since Internet users can bypass the block, the court pointed out that rendering such websites more difficult for the general public to access would already be sufficient.

Now the industry watchers expect the first blocking requests to be filed. 3DL.am was already taken offline, but GEMA may also target other high-profile pirate websites like The Pirate Bay and KickassTorrents.

eNdEmiOn avatarSad day for Germany. They used to be more aware of the consequences of tings like censorship. Considering their history, in particular the Nazi times and all the censoring and propaganda that went along with it.

BaBaDapper avatarWould be interesting to get a line drawing map of the world, and then colour in each country as it falls in line with big business.
