Record Labels Appeal Legal Defeat Against Stream-Rippers

Story :

Over the years we have covered dozens of piracy-related lawsuits, mostly from United States courts.

In many of these cases, defendants are foreign sites or services which don’t put up much of a fight.

That’s not true for the copyright infringement lawsuit a group of major record labels, backed by the RIAA, brought against Tofig Kurbanov last year.

The Russian operator of YouTube rippers and fought back with a motion to dismiss. This request was granted last week. Judge Claude Hilton ruled that the court lacked jurisdiction over these types of sites if they are operated from abroad.
