Managers of Spain's biggest free streaming websites acquitted of piracy

Story :

The former administrators of 3 film and TV series websites that became popular in the Spanish-speaking world were acquitted on Friday, June 21, of violating intellectual property rights as a court ruled they merely directed users to illegal servers.

One association of audiovisual producers had estimated the damages they caused to rights holders at more than 500 million euros ($565 million) and prosecutors had sought a two-year jail sentence against the four defendants, as well as fines and compensation.

Prosecutors said the websites "gave internet users access to audiovisual material protected by intellectual property rights", providing web links to other sites where online users could watch or download films and series for free.

But in its sentence, a court in Murcia ruled that the defendants' 3 websites "did not contain any kind of audiovisual content, but only published the links that led to other servers where the works were put up."
