After the unspecified reason for the delay of the civil case verdict, it finally arrived on march 16th. The first civil case has been acknowledged and again it’s been said that it’s no copyright infringement, however it’s a wrongful act to index hash-codes.
It’s looking awfully familiar, the waiting game is in full effect again. The civil appeal verdict should have been more then 2 weeks ago, but without a word from the court, it looks like it’s postponed for an unspecified time. Unsurprisingly, the DoJ appeal resume has also been delayed from 27th January to 14th of April 2010.
It’s starting to sound repetitive but here is a brief report of the the civil appeal from last wednesday, 25th November 2009 in Amsterdam. The courts decision is on 12th January 2010.
First of all, you can read what happened in the first case back in 2008 and why I went for the appeal.
I don’t have much to report so I will keep it brief. Once I got there, the first surprise I heard from my former SC ISP, is that not FIOD-ECD was appointed to investigate uploading, but BREIN instead!
November the 18th begins the long awaited DoJ appeal against ShareConnector. We reported about our first trial which took place July 19 2007, almost 2,5 years ago.
Recently I got a letter from the Department of Justice, stating that they want a re-trial which they desperately lost back in July 24 2007. I’m really surprised that they want another shot at trying to make us look as criminals. Nobody expected the DoJ to go for an appeal after an embarrassing defeat 2 years ago.
