It is the first time that it happens in Spain, but it could set a precedent. The Provincial Court of Barcelona has just forced the Galician cable R operator to disconnect from the Internet service a user, also a Galician, with the pseudonym Nitto75 who had shared music with other users through a P2P file exchange program ( or peer-to-peer).
According to information from Expansión, the company has been forced to immediately cut the service it provides to its client after the courts have indicated it to do so, as established by article 138 of the controversial Intellectual Property Law. It indicates that after a conviction of these characteristics, the judge must “urge the cessation of the illegal activity of the offender and demand compensation for the material and moral damages caused.” Hence, the judge requests the disconnection of this user, who will no longer be able to access the Internet through the network of this operator.
