Latest ECDR

Issue 1 for 2010 of the bimonthly European Copyright and Design Reports, published by Sweet & Maxwell, features an English translation of Bonnier Amigo Music Norway AS v Telenor Telecom Solutions AS, a November 2009 decision from the District Court of Asker og Baerum (Norway) which held that an internet service provider was not liable as a contributory copyright infringer, since its role is not an "unlawful contributive" one, contributing in a "merely physical" manner only. This case arose following an application by various rights owners for a preliminary order that internet service provider Telenor block customer access to The Pirate Bay.
