Aussie Film Industry Appeals ISP Copyright Case

schliz writes “The Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT) has appealed a Federal Court judgement that this month exonerated ISP iiNet for its subscribers’ copyright-infringing activities. In the widely publicised case, AFACT sought to penalize iiNet for its users having made 100k illegal downloads. A judge ruled that ‘mere provision of access to internet is not the means to infringement‘, but AFACT now claims the judgement ‘left an unworkable online environment for content creators and content providers’ and ‘represents a serious threat to Australia’s digital economy.’”
