Rapidshare got sued

January 23rd, 2007 at 10:38am dark

It seems that the very popular 1-click-hosting website Rapidshare raised the interest of the GEMA (Gesellschaft für musikalische Aufführungs- und mechanische Vervielfältigungsrechte or, translated in English, Society for musical performing and mechanical reproduction rights).

The Heise Online website reports that GEMA obtained an injuction against Rapidshare for having illegally allowed its users to upload content protected by copyright. The owners of the website defend themselves saying that the users upload files under their own responsability, so Rapidshare, under a legal point of view, is absolutely not guilty.
