Major Usenet Provider Ordered to Remove All Infringing Content

News-Service.com, One of the world’s leading Usenet providers, has been ordered by a Dutch court to delete all content from its servers that is considered to be infringing upon copyrighted material. This is another major setback for Usenet providers.

NSE argued that are simply transmitting content, much like an Internet provider does. However, the court rejected this defense, adding that a notice and takedown procedure is insufficient to protect the rightsholders.
