In AU, Film Studios Issue Ultimatum To ISPs

bennyboy64 writes “The Australian court case between the film industry and ISP iiNet drew to a close yesterday after the film studios issued an ultimatum: Take copyright responsibilities seriously or leave the industry. ‘Businesses such as ISPs want to enjoy the benefit of being able to make money out of the provision of Internet service facilities and they enjoy that benefit. But it carries with it a responsibility,’ said Tony Bannon SC, the film industry’s lawyer. ‘They provide a facility that is able to be used for copyright infringement purposes. If they don’t like having to deal with copyright notices then they should get out of the business.’ iTnews has done a short one minute interview with iiNet’s CEO Michael Malone as he left the court on the final day. Also on the final day, the judge dismissed the Internet Industry Association’s involvement in the case.”
