EFA, Pirate Party: iiNet win ‘common sense’

The Pirate Party Australia has welcomed iiNet’s internet piracy victory over a coalition of film and TV studios, describing it as "a victory for common sense", while civil liberties group Electronic Frontiers Australia (EFA) said sanity had prevailed.

Justice Cowdroy today handed iiNet a sound victory in the Australian ISP’s long-running battle against a coalition of film and television studios, finding that iiNet did not authorise copyright infringement carried out by its customers using the BitTorrent file-sharing platform.
