US Federal Judges Disagree on Legality of Uploading

US Federal Judges Disagree on Legality of Uploading: “A US federal judge in a record industry lawsuit against college students finds in a pretrial ruling that leaving a copyrighted song where others can get at it with P2P software doesn’t constitute a copyright violation until someone downloads it. The Boston judge’s comments conflict with a New York federal judge’s statements that leaving a copyrighted file accessible could be illegal, even if nobody downloads it.
