Appeal Against iiNet Copyright Ruling Dismissed

It’s been more than a year since the original result of the trial bought against iiNet by various copyright bodies, which found that iiNet couldn’t be held responsible for the actions of its BitTorrent-loving users. That finding was appealed, but the appeal has failed, with the Federal Court today upholding the original decision.

That doesn’t necessarily mean the end of the line, as a further appeal to the High Court is possible. But it does suggest that copyright holders will need to look to other avenues to fight against online piracy, rather than holding ISPs responsible.
