Taiwan court rules in favor of P-to-P company

Different places, different results. In the US, the industry is now hunting filesharers after the recent ruling against Grokster. But consider that this ruling only applies to the US.

A court in Taiwan found peer-to-peer (P-to-P) file-sharing software maker not guilty of violating copyrights. There apparently are similarities to the Grokster case in the US "in that both Ezpeer and Grokster provide software to users that allows them to swap everything from music to movies and software." International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) in Taiwan, disagreed with the court ruling and it is clear that they will appeal against the ruling.

But as I said - different countries, different rulings.
