Dutch Site with MP3 Links Loses Ruling, Goes Offline

A Dutch music website which links to MP3 files had to stop promoting the infringement of artist rights and copyrights, the Dutch court of appeal said in a ruling that overturned an earlier one in favor of the site. The website www.zoekmp3.nl, operated by Techno Design, had been taken down after the ruling which said that failure to comply with the injunction would lead to fines of 10,000 euros ($12,590) per day, or 1,000 euros per infringing file.
