Representatives of the film, music and software industry must still accept considerable sales losses due to the private exchange of their copyrighted works in so-called Peer-2-Peer-Networks. Through file sharing systems, such as eMule or BitTorrent, users unite to a community and exchange the data of their computers. Not only a download of a copy of a copyrighted file takes place, rather the user also offers suitable files even to other participants to upload. The user makes also available the files of other participants which exist on his computer through the P2P network for unlawful download.

Judgement of LG Köln (Regional Court Cologne) of 13/05/2009, file number: 28 O 889/08

Those who make available an Internet access in own household and therefore make possible the participation in music file sharing networks, have the obligation to check and perform if needed. According to the court, to prohibit the children expressly and specifically to download music, it is not enough. As effective action, they would have had to set up the computer with limited rights as well as a Firewall, which prevent the download of data from the computer.
