Court Orders Web Site To Remove Claims About Peer-To-Peer Downloads

Reuters is reporting about a California case involving a web site that promised its customers that they would not be sued for copyright violations when downloading songs from peer-to-peer networks.  The FTC claimed the site's promises were untrue.  One of the claims quoted in the story read "Rest assured that File-Sharing is 100 percent legal."  There were several other claims the Commission specifically cited.  A federal court in Claifornia ordered the site to remove the claim as it considers a permanent ban.

The story is available here.  The FTC press release is here.
