iiNet battles AFACT in court and by press release

iiNet faced AFACT in court today in its long running battle with the movie industry, as embodied in AFACT, over its failure to act on illegal downloads of copyright material by its broadband customers. iiNet claims that The Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT) -representing major movie studios - has demanded it act illegally, AFACT says this is nonsense.

iiNet announced yesterday that it had scored a minor win in its court battle with the Australian film and TV industry which is suing it for breach of copyright. However the film and TV players claim the victory as theirs.
