LXer: Copyright infringement - inside the legal minefield

Published at LXer:

Not only that, but aspects of this judgement are relevant to what is being suggested for ISPs in the Anti Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) that New Zealand and other countries are currrently negotiating in secret. The Judge's ruling that iiNet's refusal to obey AFACT's requests to terminate it's customers internet connections based solely on AFACT's allegations (a "three strikes" policy) was reasonable adds weight to New Zealand's rebuttal of such suggestions by other countries in those negotiations and cannot be ignored.

[Not directly FOSS related, but of interest I think - Sander]

sounds like
i found a witch, may i burn her?

in short guilty before proven innocent, not the best way to do it.

not to mention an ISP is supposed to be a neutral third party.
