German Court: If Parents Cover For Their Kid’s Piracy, They Become Liable

Hundreds of thousands of German citizens (and quite possibly more) have been hit with settlement notices over the past 15 years.

The country is one of the most risky places in the world to share files without the permission of copyright holders, as plenty of Internet users have found to their detriment.

One such case, dating back to 2011, saw Universal Music send a letter to a family whose Internet connection was used to share the Rihanna album ‘Loud’. However, the case wasn’t straightforward.

The parents, to whom the letter was addressed, stated that they had no interest whatsoever in the R&B star. However, one of their three children did, and the parents actually knew which one had committed the infringement.
