    German citizens are responsible for the security of their own private wireless connections, a court has ruled.

    The ruling comes after a musician sued the owner of a network connection that had been used to illegally download and file-share music.

    The owner had proof that the householder was on holiday at the time but the court ruled that the network should have been password-protected.
