Also wenn ich das richtig verstehe, dann erlaubt die italienische Regierung in Zukunft das Verbreiten von MP3-Dateien im Netz. Legales Filesharing durch Unkenntnis technischer Begriffe. Mal sehen, wie lange das Gesetz Bestand hat und ob es das zuständige Ministerium passiert.
According to Italian lawyer Andrea Monti, an expert on copyright and Internet law, the new Italian copyright law would authorize users to publish and freely share copyrighted music (p2p included). The new law, already approved by both legislative houses, indeed says that one is allowed to publish freely, through the Internet, free of charge, images and music at low resolution or “degraded,” for scientific or educational use, and only when such use is not for profit. As Monti says in the interview, those who wrote it didn’t realize that the word “degraded” is technical, with a very precise meaning, which includes MP3s, which are compressed with an algorithm that ensures a quality loss. The law will be effective after the appropriate decree of the ministry, and will probably have an impact on pending p2p judicial cases.
Nachtrag: heise hat noch ein paar mehr Informationen.
