Default Belgian ISP must filter P2P music; files appeal

Belgium, known for mustache-wearing detective Hercule Poirot, excellent chocolate, and peeing statues, could soon have a new distinction: Europe's toughest copyright cops. As you may know, the Belgian Society of Authors, Composers, and Publishers (SABAM) won a case in late June against ISP Scarlet Extended SA in which the court ruled that Scarlet would be required to use Audible Magic filtering technology to stop the spread of music on P2P networks. Predictably, the IFPI was thrilled. Scarlet was given six months to comply with the order, but SABAM has wasted no time in trying to use the ruling to convince other ISPs to follow suit.
