Parents Not Responsible For Kid’s Music Piracy

Wow, this is a switch. Normally parents are responsible for everything their precious snowflakes and/or demon spawn do. wink

A ruling handed down yesterday by Germany’s highest court represents a blow to rightsholders in their quest to clamp down on illicit file-sharing.
