RapidShare Got Huge Copyright Infringement Fine

In this past February world’s famous cyberlocker service RapidShare was required by a court to delete about 150 e-books from the hoster’s archives. Besides, the service was ordered to prevent its visitors from uploading such files, for which it had to implement a filter. However, the publishers who initially brought the case to the court proved that the cyberlocker was quick to violate the injunction. Considering this, the Regional Court of Hamburg issued the file-hosting company with a huge fine of 150,000 euro – around 1,000 per book.

It was back in February 4th when a group of solid book publishers brought up a lawsuit against RapidShare. All the plaintiffs are the world’s famous textbook publishers, including Macmillan, Elsevier, and Pearson. The lawsuit listed almost 150 titles the publishers held the copyrights to, and apparently they wanted RapidShare to stop distributing user-uploaded copies of those textbooks through its service.

In a week, the District Court in Hamburg decided to issue a preliminary ruling against the cyberlocker. RapidShare was ordered to stop distributing electronic versions of the books within a week. To do so it was supposed to remove all existing titles and monitor further user uploads in order to ensure they won’t appear again. The court pointed out that failure to do so would cost RapidShare up to 250,000 euros in fines.

Nevertheless, after the publishers who started the lawsuit conducted searches of the cyberlocker’s archives short after the injunction, they found out that most of the titles mentioned in the lawsuit in question remained available for downloading. Then, having evidence of the violation of the injunction in hand, the group of publishers asked the court to impose penalties. And that’s what the Regional Court of Hamburg did a few days ago. A fine of 150,000 euros was upheld for violation of the injunction after the Court stated that file-hoster didn’t take reasonable measures including a word filter checking the file name during the process of uploading.

Aside from the fine the company was also forced to install a word filter and conduct searches of the relevant popular external link libraries. The publishers are sure that these measures will ensure the necessary mechanisms to prevent copyright violation and make services like Rapidshare unable to profit from illegal downloading.
