Abstract

SABAM v. Scarlett is a June 29, 2007 decision from a Belgian trial court ordering an ISP in that country to install filtering software to prevent the ISP's users from accessing unauthorized music downloads via peer-to-peer systems. The court made this order following an expert report on the feasibility of such filtering. The decision has generated a fair amount of controversy and this translation is intended to provide intellectual property teachers and practitioners with a citable, English source for the opinion. Users are welcome to reproduce the translation, in whole or in excerpts, for any non-profit educational, non-profit research, or other non-commercial purpose. This translation inaugurates the "translation series" in the Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law Journal; the translators welcome comments.
