After a series of well publicised accusations against an Oz ISP, AFACT does amazing "u-turn". http://torrentfreak.com/anti-piracy-group-drops-ridiculous-claim-against-isp-090930/
With just days to go before the BitTorrent piracy case involving Aussie ISP iiNet goes to court, anti-piracy group AFACT has made a second significant legal retreat. The group, which represents Hollywood movie studios, has now dropped its claims that iiNet engaged in primary acts of copyright infringement
AFACT previously demanded disconnection for those iiNet subscribers alleged to have infringed their copyrights by sharing material using BitTorrent. iiNet refused to comply and legal action against them followed.
In addition to AFACT’s assertion that iiNet committed secondary acts of infringement, i.e it is responsible for the copyright infringing actions of its subscribers (something it denies), AFACT had earlier claimed that iiNet engaged in primary infringement too.
Now, just days before the trial begins, AFACT has withdrawn this key part of its claim against iiNet.
A spokesman for iiNet told AustralianIT that the withdrawal indicated that AFACT’s legal team had earlier “fundamentally misunderstood” how an ISP works and had been “clutching at straws”.
This latest withdrawal of selective aspects of their "sham litigation" is following the usual method employed by the movie and music recording industires of making many public accusations and spreading those accusations far and wide and then quietly dropping the claims, hoping they have duped the public, well guess what AFACT you have failed miserably, folks will remember your lies and misleading claims thanks to the power of Google and those whom expose your stupidity.
