Submission + - EU Court Asked To Rule On Private Copying (torrentfreak.com)

Techmeology writes: "The Dutch Supreme Court has asked the European Courte of Justice to decide whether downloading copyrighted material for personal use — even from illegal sources — is legal. At the heart of the debate is whether the European Copyright Directive requires that any new legal copy of material must have originated from a copy that is itself legal. The case tests the law in the Netherlands, where copyright holders are granted a levy on blank media in exchange for the legalisation of private copying."
