Irish ISP Wins Major Legal Victory Against Record Companies

An anonymous reader writes “The High Court in Dublin ruled today that there was no precedent in Irish law to force ISPs to identify and disconnect people accused of illegally downloading copyrighted files. The court case was spurred by objections to the recording industry’s three-strikes system from Irish internet provider UPC. Earlier this year, Eircom, one of Ireland’s other large ISPs, gave in and implemented the system, as we discussed previously. This resulted in many of the more ‘technical’ users leaving that ISP in droves. Nice to see an ISP willing to take a stand.”
