Dutch site linking to MP3 files loses court case

The website www.zoekmp3.nl, operated by Techno Design, had been taken down on Monday after the ruling on Friday which said that failure to comply with the injunction would lead to fines of 10,000 Euro ($12,590) per day, or 1,000 Euro per infringing file.
