India scores lowest on copyright protection: US survey

India was ranked lowest for enforcing trademarks, patents and other intellectual property in a report released by the US Chamber of Commerce on Wednesday. India scored just 6.95 on a 30-point index, the second annual list to be compiled by the group's Global Intellectual Property Centre (GIPC). "India continues to have the weakest IP environment of all countries included in the Index," the report, emailed to AFP, said.

German court admits it may have made a mistake in copyright case against online porn viewers

BERLIN - A regional court in Germany says it may have slipped up in a case that saw thousands of Internet users receive copyright infringement claims for watching pornography online. The Cologne court says it examined complaints from dozens of people who received warning letters from a Swiss-based company demanding €250 ($340) for allegedly watching pirated porn on a video streaming website. Legal experts say the court should never have granted The Archive AG's request to identify the users, because it failed to establish that they had breached German copyright law.
