Abstract

The record industry is engaged in a determined campaign to stop the unlawful copying of music files downloaded via the Internet. In Sony & Others v. Easyinternetcafé [2003] All ER(D) 249 proceedings were brought by several major record companies to prevent Easyinternetcafé from providing a service copying music files onto CDs for its customers. The claimants succeeded in their aim. However the summary judgment which they obtained had a sting in the tail. It supports the proposition that there is an exception within which copying from the Internet is lawful.
