Australia’s third-largest ISP finally found itself in court this week after film companies last year sued iiNet for not disconnecting Internet users on their say-so. The case will be a major test of Australia’s “safe harbor” copyright law that provides immunity to Internet service providers””but only those that “reasonably implement” a user termination policy for “repeat infringers.”
Apparently a one-year investigation uncovered 97,942 examples of iiNet customers distributing copyrighted films illegally via peer-to-peer networks. Only that many? The most egregious crime was a buried lead, though.
The movie Wanted was the most popular offering, while the truly execrable Hancock was second.
Ouch. Hancock is probably the worst film I’ve ever seen. I truly hope that the film industry catches these bastards, and that innocent children haven’t been exposed to the vile, perverted vision of reality portrayed in Hancock.
