Court: Usenet Provider Can Be Held Liable for Pirating Users

Many seasoned file-sharers, who’ve been around for a while, will recognize UseNeXT as a familiar brand.

The Usenet provider advertised its services on popular platforms in the past, including many torrent sites. These promotional efforts also drew the interest of rightsholders, but not in a good way.

In Germany, the local music rights group GEMA, which represents roughly 72,000 artists, took UseNeXT’s parent company Aviteo to court. The first request for an injunction dates back to December 2006, almost twelve years ago but, despite several judgments, the battle is not over yet.

GEMA does, however, get to celebrate another victory this week.
