Studios lodge appeal in ISP copyright case

34 film companies have filed an appeal against the judgment of the Federal Court in the case against the Australian internet service provider, iiNet.

The Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT), on behalf of the film companies, said there were good grounds of appeal from a judgment that has left an unworkable online environment for content creators and content providers and represents a serious threat to Australia’s digital economy.

iiNet responded with its own media release, claiming litigation was not the solution to illegal downloading.
