Hollywood loses key battle over illegal downloads

Hollywood loses key battle over illegal downloads by Talek Harris Talek Harris – Thu Feb 4, 4:08 am ET | SYDNEY (AFP) – "Hollywood film studios on Thursday lost a landmark court bid to hold an Australian Internet provider responsible for illegal movie downloads by its customers, in a serious blow to their fight against piracy."

Looks like someone has a clue. The decision on the Australian piracy case proves that there is at least one jurisdiction that has a grasp of common sense with respect to the Internet. But the fight is not over yet. There will be more cases where the powerful corporations and organizations try to extort more money from users. Hopefully this decision will provide a little ammo to combat the greedy.
