‘Pirate’ Movie Streaming Sites Declared Legal By Italian Court

I have a feeling that a favorable ruling like this will no doubt open the flood gates for other sites that link to pirated movies to migrate to Italy.

A Court of Appeal in Rome has overturned a 600,000 euro ruling against four unlicensed sites that offered streaming movies to the public. The Court found that merely providing links does not qualify as distributing files protected by copyright, even though the sites generated revenue via advertising.
