Abstract

In what is being billed as iiNet versus Hollywood, the Australian internet service provider has come out an apparent winner after the High Court dismissed a copyright infringement case brought by industry movie studios.

The case was a final appeal by the industry in its attempts to crack down on internet users infringing copyright by using BitTorrent to download movies.
