Not our view, but that of Spanish judges, ruling on a lawsuit against P2P site CVCDGO. They ruled that the site does not violate copyright law because it doesn’t actually host infringing content – it merely links to it. But it’s the judges’ quote that will get the creative industries’ goat. In translation: “Since ancient times there has been the loan or sale of books, movies, music and more. The difference now is mainly on the medium used – previously it was paper or analog media and now everything is in a digital format which allows a much faster exchange of a higher quality and also with global reach through the Internet.” Source: Music Week
