Interesting read, thanks.

From article:
... the move into Australia would likely bring an end to one line of argument used by people for online copyright infringement about the lack of the availability of a service like Netflix in Australia.


Thats assuming that the shows that people typically download illegally are available on the Australian NetFlix catalogue. Not only is the service required, but the content it has can't be hobbled. 

From article:
Although Burke couldn't put a figure on how much it was costing his company, he said that copyright infringement was "becoming like a bushfire" in Australia. "Our numbers are soft, but also just the sheer number of anecdotal reports. It's just massive," he said.


Not doing much to increase his credibility WRT the real damage piracy is doing to his industry with statements like that.
