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.
The DoJ changed their mind after the judge concluded that all the criminal charges were falls and unrelated. The only charge they left now is accessory to copyright infringement.
In addition they wanted to investigate if it’s possible to disable uploading. I’m all for that, but what they did is assign this task to FIOD-ECD, which screwed up majorly with their so called ‘investigation’ in our first trial. My lawyer tried to convince them that an independent investigation is a better idea, and as usual, they didn’t listen.
Another little surprise they recently announced is that one day will not be enough and the plea will take place in January 2010.
I’m fully confident that it again will be a major failure for the DoJ.
The appeal should begin at 09.30. If I’m in the mood I’ll report how it went that day.
