said by wh8 : You are pretty much correct. If I have an empty folder named Star Wars and I share it... I can't get in trouble in any way for sharing an empty file named after a copyrighted movie....If I could in someway get in trouble for sharing the name "Star Wars" then this thread and my post would be illegal which of course it's not.
I don't understand how a file can be copyrighted? The files may contain copyrighted content, but the files themselves aren't copyrighted. Am I correct in thinking this?
Now, for example, if that folder has any of the Star Wars movies or other Star Wars content in it that IS copyrighted, LucasArts has the rights to go after me for illegal distribution and anything else that they can legally get away with throwing at me..
Files don't get people busted for copyright infringement, content does....
