Sanity prevails! I totally agree with the judge, why should someone act on a notice from an arrogant corporation(only interested in protecting profits, not artist livelihoods) that has very little information on it, it would be like someone being convicted of a crime because the prosecutor handed the judge a piece of paper which reads "we think the person is guilty". Although I don't condone illegal downloading, the freedom of the internet should never be challenged and businesses need to find ways to work with the natural evolution of the internet not fight it. This is all reminscent of the music industry waving a big stick when everyone was downloading music and they wanted it stopped (like they really had the power) and finally they found a way to still make money online by providing an avenue to purchase reasonably priced music.
