Yet another FTL thread.

    However the question here is phrased a bit differently:
    Is the relocation of a piece of information from one spot to another in a shorter time than c-speed light would cover the distance theoretically possible? Or at definitively least not ruled out to be impossible.

    From what I know of relativity I'd wager the answer is either "no" or "your question is nonsensical", but I like to throw a bone to the romantic in me once in a while.

    Information is transmitted in some physical way. All physical phenomena must travel no faster than light so information cannot travel faster than light.
