Dutch Court Shuts Down MP3 Site

Dutch courts have shut down a web site that provided links to mp3 files even though it did not host the content itself.  The decision by the Dutch Court of Appeal overturns a lower court ruling that the site, Zoekmp3.nl, did not violate copyright.  Zoekmp3 did post notices asking users not to violate copyright, though the appellate court did not buy that argument, noting that the sites users were there looking for illegal downloads. 

Details are at the BBC, ZDNet, and Heise Online.
