Way to go, Aussies!

Australian ISP iiNet won a legal victory against the Hollywood studios who wanted to hold the ISP liable for its client’s downloads. Australia’s highest federal court today found in a unanimous decision that Perth-based iiNet could not be held responsible for the trade of thousands of pirate movies and music files by its customers.

I have to ad that iiNet has a similar attitude toward the illegal download issue as I do–make this materially available at a reasonable price. Stop looking the other way and start providing this to people who don’t have access to this material in their countries,

  1. You mean that the manufacturer and distributer can't be held responsible for what users do with their products? Interesting.
