Torrent tracker isoHunt was slapped down by a Canadian Supreme Court judge yesterday, ruling against a motion brought by the company to seek declaratory relief – a judgement to say it is not directly infringing copyrighted material.

Oh, and he also compared isoHunt to a gun dealer, saying that while a gun dealer wouldn’t be held responsible for every illegal action committed with its products, it would be held responsible on some level if it knew when selling a weapon that it would be used in a murder. Not that this settles the issue.
