On Digg estvir wrote an article about a recent case of a judge telling RIAA that its up to them to prove that the plantiff(the one there sueing) was actively sharing there copyrighted material. Basically that it wasnt enough to show that the plantiff put the files on there computer but that they actively advertised the material to others to download! 


Judge David G.
