Twentieth Century Fox v Newzbin

Mr Justice Kitchen has today handed down a significant judgment in Twentieth Century Fox v Newzbin, holding that the Usenet indexing site Newzbin ‘is liable to the claimants for infringement of their copyrights because it has authorised the copying of the claimants' films; has procured and engaged with its premium members in a common design to copy the claimants' films; and has communicated the claimants' films to the public.

More discussion to follow on 1709.
