Copyright Cartel Dusseldorf: Shutters Tor, Wifi, and ISP Exception

In 1709 (or was it 1710?) the Statute of Anne created the first
purpose-built copyright law. This blog, founded just 300 short and
unextended years later, is dedicated to all things copyright, warts
and all.

In a judgment on 16 March 2017 the Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf
requested the operator of an open WiFi (and a TOR exit node) to take
action against repeated copyright infringements by users of his
IP-addresses (case no. I-20 U 17/16). In all scenarios, the defendant
was liable for the infringements and was requested to take reasonable
measures to prevent further infringements.
