Court rejects RIAA’s ‘making available’ piracy argument | News Blog – CNET News.

Just putting your files somewhere accessible to others is no longer considered piracy under this court ruling, even when they are music files. For example, if you have a sharing folder, and you put the tracks from your new Snoop Dogg album there, that is not considered piracy even though other people might download it from your sharing folder. Thus, it’s not a crime to unknowingly place items in a folder that people can download from.
