P2P LItigation Crippled In DC District Court Ruling

An anonymous reader writes “In a stunning defeat for the US Copyright Group, DC District Court Judge Rosemary Collyer is forcing copyright holders to sue only those who the DC court has personal jurisdiction over. The USCG has sued over 4,500 people on behalf of a German producer that created the Far Cry movie in the DC court. But the Judge is having none of that; in her ruling [Friday], Judge Collyer stated that only those who are in the DC court’s jurisdiction can be sued — shrinking what could have been a windfall of defendant’s cash into perhaps a mere trickle.”
