iiNet says High Court judges hearing the appeal in the copyright case it has been fighting against the movie studios will have to make a decision as to exactly what action, or non-action, by an ISP would constitute authorising its customers to download copyrighted material, and that this decision will bring much needed clarity to the industry.
It is ironic in a week when the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT) is going into battle yet again with ISP iiNet that the NSW Minister for Fair Trading Anthony Roberts has accused Apple of price gouging through its Australian iTunes online store. Could Mr Roberts be whipping the wrong horse and should instead focus his attention on the members of AFACT?
Ever eager to highlight claims of rampant online copyright infringement, the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT) has cited the results of a study that it says found that 97.2 percent of BitTorrent files breach copyright. Readers feeling a sense of dÃ©jÃ vu are entirely justified.
