+ - Movie studios lose case against Australian ISP->

Submitted by danwarne
danwarne (545932) writes "The Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft today lost its landmark case against major Australian ISP iiNet, with the Australian Federal Court stating that simply providing internet access was not authorisation of copyright theft. The Australian movie studios had been arguing that iiNet should have disconnected customers and handed over their details when presented with evidence of BitTorrent copyright infringement by the studios. The Pirate Party Australia met the news with great rejoicing and used it to launch a membership drive to solidify itself as an official political party in Australia."
