Submission + - German Domain Registrar Liable For Copyright Infringment (

jfruh writes: When the German domain registrar Key-Systems registered and maintained the domain, should it have been obvious that their customer would use the site for unauthorized distribution of Robin Thicke albums? A regional German court says that they should've known, and once they had been notified they should have taken steps to prevent it from happening. Obviously domain registrars are worried that this will upend their entire business model.
