+ - Federal court pulls plug on porn copyright shakedown->

Submitted by netbuzz
netbuzz (955038) writes "The Electronic Frontier Foundation is calling it “a crushing blow for copyright trolls:” A federal appeals court today has for the first time ruled against what critics call a shakedown scheme aimed at pornography downloaders and practiced by the likes of AF Holdings, an arm of notorious copyright troll Prenda Law. The United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit called the lawsuit “a quintessential example of Prenda Law’s modus operandi” in reversing a lower court ruling that would have forced a half-dozen ISPs to identify account holders associated with 1,058 IP addresses."
