    • Investigators tracked nearly 100,000 instances of iiNet customers sharing files illegally during a 59-week period, prosecutors told the Federal Court in Sydney today as the Internet Service Provider’s copyright trial finally got underway.

      A coalition of film and TV companies under the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT) banner is taking on the Perth-based iiNet in an anticipated case which is expected to seriously test Australia’s copyright law in the digital age.
