What? From The Jewish Press:
Will downloading music and movies from the Internet, in Israel, soon become legal?
MK Meir Shitreet (Hatnuah) along with other MKs have proposed a bill that would make it legal for home users to download and copy movies and, songs from the Internet and copying disks. The law, if passed, would only make it legal for personal use, but not for selling.
