Moral of the story. Don’t live in a country controlled by the EU government…

"Moral of the story. Don’t live in a country controlled by the EU government…"
Not really, if you live in EU choose The Netherlands, because as you can read, they obey the EU and now say that is illegal, but they wont do anything about it, except “focus their attention on those who upload large amounts of copyrighted works”. How much is large amounts? And downloaders as you can read “No individual downloaders will face prosecution in The Netherlands as a result of this ruling”.

Go Netherlands

^Brein’s primary targets will be websites and services that facilitate piracy. They will also be putting more pressure on ISP’s for blocking sites.

And no prosecution for individuals means no criminal charges…it doesn’t necessarily rule out civil suits by movie studios, recording studios and the like.

Since about 2003 (birth of The Pirate bay) the exporting of US copyright laws to the northern European countries has been relentless-- so this is not surprising. Generally lots of slush money and corruption are what makes this happen-- not real justice.
