Flash: Scarlet appeals against p2p filter

ISP Scarlet has announced that it will appeal the ruling of the Brussels court to Block downloads of illegal Music and video through p2p networks. The Dutch ISP operating in Belgium is the first ISP worldwide which has been obliged to filter music and video downloads, when they are shared with p2p software.

Sabam, the collecting society which brought the case to court, has written a letter to all Belgian ISP requesting a response within eight days whether they will install filter software within 6 months.
