Linking MP3s is OK According to Swedish Court

Written by Jari Ketola @ 28 Dec 1999 10:39

Yesterday (12-27-99) the court in Göta, Sweden decided that "it is legal to have links to pirated music on a homepage in Sweden if the links are to a server in a country where it isn't illegal to pirate music." Earlier this year in Skövde, Sweden, a teenager was charged for linking to pirated MP3s. The charges were dropped mostly because the prosecutor could not convince the court that most of the links pointed to US servers.
