French Court says p2p file sharing is legal

The District Court of Paris has cleared a P2P user of copyright infringement despite accepting he had 1875 unauthorised MP3 and DIVX files on his computer. The court declared that uploading and downloading these files on P2P networks amounted to "private copying." (The decision was made before Christmas and the details have just been made available).
