iiNet Wins In Piracy Trial

iiNet has prevailed in the much-watched Federal Court case which accused it of aiding piracy by failing to block customers who used BitTorrent to illegally swap movies, with Justice Dennis Cowdroy ruling that iiNet was not responsible for the actions of those customers.

It’s a decision likely to be cheered by fans of Channel BT, if not by the movie industry bodies that sued the ISP in the first place. That said, an appeal is still fairly likely, so it’s probably not the last word on the subject.
