Illegal content in P2P networks: first cases in Lithuania

Today I’ve made a short presentation in the MRU conference “Social Technologies 2010: Challenges, Opportunities, Solutions“. Original PPT is available to download from my account at slideshare.com.

Meanwhile, short overview. We have already quite a few cases in Lithuania, where various P2P issues are tried in legal sense. For example, it started with dc.meganet.lt take-down in October 2008, later on November 2009 in we had “106” investigation and soon afterwards “Microsoft” vs. “linkomanija.net”. Not to talk about lower profile cases such as “tracker.lt“.

Various issues are just shortly mentioned in the presentation, all of them will be described and discussed in detail later on, when one of the academic journals publishes yet to be written article.
