ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the legality of the internet file sharing as amended in the context of the Copyright Act in the U.S. It examines the origin and coverage of the "making available" doctrine, which concerns the sharing of internet files. It argues about the nullity of the doctrine and suggests for the illegality of secondary liability as a definite violation for the Copyright Act.
