The magistrate court rejected the claim on the ground that pornographic content is not copyright-protected to the extent that it in contrast to public policy. To date, this decision of the court is precedential on an international level.

This precedential ruling was widely publicized, and the decision is quoted to this very day in rulings and in the professional literature.
