+ - Hollywood law firm forced to ban BitTorrent

Submitted by natecochrane
natecochrane (1887566) writes "An allegedly leaked email reveals legal eagles swooped on P2P in their own nest. A partner from the law firm representing a film industry trade group in its battle against No.2 Australian ISP iiNet has sent an email telling staff "not to ever use" BitTorrent on its corporate internet account. Repeat offenders would be sent to the office of the senior partner who lost the law suit against iiNet last year, the alleged email read. The Federal Court last year threw out the action by the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft, which counts Matrix producers Village Roadshow as a member, that claimed the ISP authorised infringement because it didn't do enough to stop subscribers using BitTorrent."
