• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

The Supreme Court ruled that file-sharing services ie. Grokster can be sued for copyright infringment.

I assume this only applies to companies that operate within the US? So if a company is based in, say, the Netherlands, it is not affected by this ruling? Or is there some way a European company can be sued in US courts?

It would only apply to US companies, but the article goes on to say that Europe has been watching this case and will probably follow suit in short order.

When the oral arguments were heard in this case, we made sure every one who entered the supreme court through the lawyers line was with RIAA. We got in line very early in the morning.
