Australian Goverment bans show in VictoriaMike89 writes "Thousands of Victorians defied a court ban on the controversial gangland drama 'Underbelly' and downloaded it off the internet just hours after it was aired in other states around Australia. Up to 1.3 million viewers watched the Nine Network series premiere on Wednesday night but many Victorians saw it as well after illegally downloading the two-hour episode off sites such as Mininova and Pirate Bay. The viewing was in spite of a suppression order made by a Victorian Supreme Court judge to stop Nine airing the program in the state and placing episodes on the "internet in Victoria". The anti-piracy watchdog has warned downloaders that if they're caught, they 'could face both copyright and contempt of court charges'. Channel Nine is currently appealing the ban."
