Court rules internet provider not responsible for unauthorised downloads of movies on

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/cou...-1225826650849

" A consortium of 34 movie studios, headed by Village Roadshow, had hoped to prove iiNet not only failed to take steps to stop illegal file-sharing by customers but breached copyright itself by storing and transmitting the data through its system.

Justice Dennis Cowdroy has found it is "impossible'' to hold iiNet responsible for what its users have done in the landmark judgment that may secure the future for all internet service providers (ISPs)."

This has been a lenghty battle by iinet who argued that they should not be held repsonsible for what users download and should not be required to terminate a customers service without a court having found the customer guilty of illegal downloads.
