    A federal Court rejected a motion today that would have allowed the Canadian Recording Industry Association to sue 29 people for Copyright Infringement.

    The Judge said "No evidence was presented that the alleged infringers either distributed or authorized the reproduction of sound recordings" "They merely placed personal copies into their shared directories which were accessible by other computer users via a P2P service."

    According to the Federal Court making music availible online through p2p is NOT a voilation of Copyright Laws!
