It’s been exactly 1 year ago since my last post, so I thought it’s time to write something. You might have noticed that I wasn’t busy with the site. Today is also the day that ShareConnector turned 7. I’m amazed that it’s already been so long since it’s existence. I know this site has become a boring place, so I’ve been thinking what to do with it. Recently I changed the look and feel but I can’t say it’s 100% finished yet, so I’ll tweak some things here and there. Anyway, the idea is to make ShareConnector an useful and helpful place.
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.
After six years of battles in court, the final verdict declares this whole case as non-suit. Simply put, the Public Prosecution Service has no valid case since the investigation and prosecution of the victims was illegal and based on evident lies. It’s a major blow to BREIN and everyone involved against us.
After some speculations the interim judgment is in and brings some interesting facts to the table. The case has indeed been reopened without a set date for the next trial.
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.
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.
