Rapidshare is legal, finds German court – Techworld.com Scrapbook

Rapidshare emphasised that the court explicitly recognised the legality of Rapidshares business model and gave it legal legitimacy. Gema welcomed the courts ruling that Rapidshare is still prohibited from making public the works of musicians represented by the organisation, but didnt get its way on the measures the court ordered Rapidshare to take to prevent copyright infringement.The copyright organisation had asked the court to order Rapidshare to scan files during the upload process, but the court took another approach, ruling that Rapidshare must actively monitor incoming links from external sites to the files it hosts and take down any illegal files thus identified.This is exactly what Rapidshare has been doing for years, the company said. Rapidshare has an anti-abuse team that identifies illegal files that will be immediately blocked when spotted.
