daria42 (866794) writes "In a move which will escalate the debate over BitTorrent to the highest court in Australia, the country's High Court has agreed to hear the long-running case between one of the country's largest ISPs, iiNet, and a group of film and TV studios represented by a copyright organisation known as AFACT. The case has the potential to determine once and for all whether Australians who download content via BitTorrent can have their Internet connections disconnected upon the request of the studios. It's lawyers at ten paces!"
