nico: Can you point me in the right direction with regards to that law? I'm Dutch and I've never heard of or seen such a law, so please forgive any scepticism on my part. However, if the content being shared or uploaded is copyright protected, and there's no approval by the IP holder, it certainly is illegal. The main distinction here being that the act of uploading itself is certainly a legal practice.

JGZimmerle: The same thing is being done in the Netherlands, however most people I know either don't care much about copyright infringement or don't pay much attention to it, although there is an increasing awareness about organisations such as BREIN [ [link] ] applying pressure to ISP's to report illegal sharing of copyrighted content.
