If Rapidshare.com isn't even based in Germany, how much can they do anyway?

The German Govt can do a lot. A company can't just let members of their website submit anything they want and claim no liability. Bottom line, you are liable for whats on your website. Technology exists for digital filtration of files, and the court knows this. Playing stupid/innocent won't work in 2008.

Secondly, this case will hold no bearing in US courts. Courts are required to follow precedent (the decisions of other cases that are similar in nature) but only cases that are within the same state (if law was passed by state legislature) or from any state if case involves federal law.

Get a clue, or don't talk about the law if you don't know it.

it means that some company spent millions of dollars in court to attack 1 of 1,000,000 different file sharing services in the world and "WON"

which amounts to about the same thing when a kid in school beat you at marbles and goes and tells his friends the great news ....

realistically , it means very little , and in terms of the f!ght between file sharing p2p stuff etc etc .... its but a small mark on gigantic beast which feeds all of us hardworking people a breif moment of freedom ....

What about the rumor if the current internet being scraped completely, and being replaced with internet 2.0?

Everything that you download will be filtered and viewed by your isp, if it's illegal you're fu*ked??

Yeah, I don't like how rapidshare tried to say it was all the users fault. Give me a break. They know what the damn service for. Majority of the files on the site are pirated material. It's like if the people that sell the FTA (Free To Air) receivers got in trouble and said, "well, we can't control what the customer does with it".

Plus, this could have consequences on everyone that uses Rapidshare. The article made it sound like they would start having to release IPs of the downloaders or something.

i wish they would've shut down rapidshare...one of the worst upload sites around.
To cheap to spend $10 a month, huh? Rapidshare is the best download site if you're a paid member, no site keeps links longer.
