Another Victory For Internet Freedom

In a victory for Internet freedom, the High Court of Australia has ruled that Internet service providers have no responsibility when it comes to the actions of their customers regarding copyright infringement.

The entertainment industry had been hoping for a ruling that would have punished Internet service providers for failing to suspend or terminate contracts with customers who traded and copied pirated movies and music. This is the third time that movie studios have lost copyright infringement cases in Australia. In the USA, the entertainment industry seems to have lawmakers in their hip pocket, especially when it come to copyright laws. Hurrah for Australia!
