Peer-to-peer

Peer to peer: decision by the Federal Supreme Court

A Swiss company, acting on behalf of the media industry, has been engaged in trawling so-called peer-to-peer networks with a view to uncovering copyright infringement resulting from the illegal sharing of music and video content on the Internet. The Federal Supreme Court ordered the company to halt all copyright-related data processing activities and banned it from forwarding any data already collected to copyright holders. In so doing, it has sent out a strong signal that it opposes all attempts by private individuals, and not just in the copyright sector, to take on certain tasks that must remain the prerogative of the State.
