ISPs propose new system to fight online piracy

November 29th 2011

Just days before the High Court of Australia is due to hear an appeal in the iiNet matter (30 Nov – 2 Dec), an industry body representing Australian ISPs, the Communications Alliance, has released a proposal to address online copyright infringement.

Telstra Bigpond, Optus, iiNet, iPrimus and internode are all signatories to the Communications Alliance proposal, under which users would receive an education notice if suspected of online infringement. Repeat infringers could attract up to three warning notices within a 12-month period, after which their details could be passed on to copyright holders to allow for legal action.
