Sharing mp3s on the Web

Just found this interesting blog post on the Full Federal Court’s recent decision in Cooper v Universal Music Australia Pty Ltd [2006] FCAFC 187. The decision concerned a website set up with links which allowed people to download mp3s. The Federal Court found that the website contravened Australian copyright law. The author of the post is an IP law expert, and she gives a measured analysis of the case, saying that all is not lost for those who wish to share mp3s on the ‘net.
