Judge says IP Address doesn’t prove anything in piracy case


This story is personal to me because I was accused of something I didn’t do or authorize. It turned out that someone had hacked into the router I had at that time and changed the password so I couldn’t stop them or see where they came from. The setup I have now is TWC modem/router and have no problems, but there is a fee to use it, cost of doing high speed (for Charlotte anyway) Internet. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and their ilk are trying to put the genie back in the bottle as far as digital media and distribution. Besides, I am not much of a movie person.

What do you do lesson of a recently dismissed federal case, which raises the burden of proof that copyright owner must meet in order to hold you accountable for infringement.
