This is some great news, too long have the corporate music and film industry dictated their policy onto everyone else.

I could never understand why they even tried to target the ISP, ok yeah they provide the interenet for the User, but thats all they are doing is providing a service, I didnt read anywhere in their terms and conditions that said, thank you for jioining IInet, please click yes to illegally download!!

It is no different than using a road to commit a crime, it is provided to use.

May as well find the malls guilty since they hold the store that I go to inorder to get dvds to rent and copy, or trademe since they act as the agent for the place that sells me blank media to put it on.

Or western digital since the only use for a 1.5tb drive is to hold pirated stuff right?
