Piracy

+ - US-style mass piracy lawsuits come to Australia->

Submitted by daria42
daria42 (866794) writes "Remember when the RIAA started sending tens of thousands of letters to Americans who it had alleged had infringed copyright online, trying to get them all to settle out of court? Yeah, good times. Well that style of mass-lawsuit has now arrived in Australia courtesy of a new company which dubs itself the 'Movie Rights Group'. The company is currently seeking to obtain details of at least 9,000 Australians it alleges has infringed copyright on one film, and it has a number of other films in the pipeline. Sounds like a good time to know an IP lawyer."
