[JURIST] Seeking to curb piracy, China has announced new rules to take effect later this month that will make ISPs liable if they host content that violates copyright. ISPs that don't remove illegal content face fines [China Daily report] of up to $12,000. The rules come in response to a call from President Bush for China to abide by international trade rules [Reuters report]. The US Supreme Court is currently deciding [MGM v. Grokster, background] if P2P file-sharing companies are liable for infringing use by third parties. AFP has more.
