What does a company that can't/won't fight for consumers' rights do when cornered by marketplace forces?

Complain about those parallel importers of course: Quickflix boss tells Netflix to end ‘back door’ access for Aussies.


The CEO of streaming company Quickflix Stephen Langsford has written an open letter to his Netflix counterpart Reed Hastings challenging the company to “come through the front door” to the Australian market and cut off access for an estimated 200,000 local subscribers.

In the open letter, sent today by Langsford, he accuses Netflix of encouraging “Australian consumers to inadvertently breach the copyright of the content owners”, and accuses them of “filching” revenues by allowing users with geo-blockers from Australia to access its content.


The important bit here, that may explain a lot:

"Shares in Quickflix are currently trading at 10c, giving it a market capitalisation of $15.23m."

We need to protect our business model! Better accuse people of copyright violations!
