Theft Is Theft?

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Nov 7, 2009.

  1. 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
    “theftâ€. 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 enoughâ€.

    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.
