Thursday December 07, 2006
Andres Guadamuz reports that a Spanish court in Pontevedra has ruled in favour of the Sociedad General de Autores y Editores (SGAE) against a café named Direccion000. SGAE initiated action against the cafe to claim royalties for de public performance of music in the locale, while the owners claimed that they did not have to pay because they were only using "free music" under Creative Commons licences. The court's decision also cast doubt on the enforceability of creative commons licenses.
