Film industry loses iiNet piracy case again
Film distributors and producers lost a second round in their court campaign against Australian Internet service provider iiNet, which they had charged authorised copyright violations of their content. But further legal action remains possible.
A Federal Court today dismissed an appeal brought by 34 film companies under the umbrella of the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT). A year ago a lower court ruled that it was not possible to hold iiNet responsible for illegal downloading of movies and television shows by its clients.
