Not Surprisingly, You Get What You Ask For

ISPs are not directly liable for copyright infringement by users who posted copyrighted photographs. So says the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in a recent holding.

Wouldn't have been how I presented the case, but the ruling makes sense. If the copyright holder really wanted to win the case, he might want to have presented the case on contributory infringement, which I've written about before, a la Napster, and the precedent for Napster.

Here's the case opinion if you want to read it.

Just goes to show you, you get what you ask for. Just don't ask for the wrong thing. You're likely to get the wrong answer.
