With the escalation of copyright infringements via the internet, it has become increasingly important to ascertain whether the South African copyright law adequately protects copyright proprietors from these types of cyber-abuses. The purpose of this contribution is to ascertain (1) whether internet users employing peer-to-peer file sharing services to infringe third parties' copyrights are guilty of copyright infringement and further (2) whether the operators of these services are guilty of copyright infringement in terms of the common law, when they do not comply with the provisions of the Electronic Communications and Transactions Act 25 of 2002.
