Studios bully the wrong ISP

lol - I love how Mark White the CEO of iiNet a major Australian ISP has told the studios to go 'f' themselves.

Basically the Studios are suing iiNet and Mark personally because when they send him details of an ip address allegedly using 'P2P' for copyright piracy content his response is 'fine, go tell it to the police, until they get involved I'm not doing anything about it'.

I'm sure the studios would love for the ISP to turn over the data, no subpoena, no trial/jury or due diligence etc but the law is the law.

Why should iiNet be booting customers off the network on the three strikes law without any actual proof or official legal involvement.

I also laugh at the studious how they pick on a smaller isp rather than suing Telstra or Optus.

I think Mark should counter sue for vexatious litigation. If the studious are serious about piracy then they should take all the legal steps required, no shortcuts.

  1. I think it's all a bit weird actually.

    It's like employers of Ivan Milat's victims, suing the Wingecarribee Shire Council for lost production because it is responsible for the roads into the Belanglo State Forest.
