Aussie ISP looks to Ombudsman in copyright case

Australian ISP iiNet, which is being sued by the Australian Against Copyright Theft (AFACT) for copyright infringement (the suit is being pursued on behalf of the big movie companies), is reportedly going to ask the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO) for support.
"AUSTRALIA'S third-largest ISP may recruit the telecommunications industry's peak regulators in its bid to beat a copyright lawsuit brought against it by a group of entertainment giants.

The Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman (TIO) said it was yet to formally discuss the case with the ISP but iiNet’s regulatory chief Steve Dalby said he had held informal discussions with the group about issues relevant to the case. "
