Theft Is Theft?
 
Update on the AFACT-versus-iiNet case
<http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/court-gets-torrent-full-about-linux>.

The funny thing is, they insist on referring to copyright infringement as
“theft”. But theft is a criminal, not a civil, offence. So when iiNet passes
on their accusations to the police, they don’t like it and accuse the ISP of
“not doing enough”.

There's been a little on the radio about ACTA recently.
Seems its full steam ahead with the Govt and its USFTA
wranglings. Doesn't bode well for the NZ ISPs.

English is the primary language of this newsgroup, Mr Sheppard.
Be good enough to use it, if you can.
