German Court Outlaws Links to Websites Offering Circumvention Technology

Immateriblog has an article entitled “German appeals court outlaws links to websites offering circumvention technology” and writes as follows:

“A Munich court of appeal upheld a lower court ruling, demanding that German IT news service Heise Online remove a link to Slysoft.com, an Antigua based company selling software enabling users to make copies of copy-protected CDs and DVDs. Legal experts criticised the decision as endangering press freedom.”

(we quote only the first paragraph of that posting – to see the rest, go to Immateriblog, a blog about immaterial goods in the information age)
