Grats to him for the darwin award.

You're a cunt, and if I had mod points your karma would reflect that. Not just for this post, but all the other stupid ones in this thread.

Australian Goverment bans show in Victoria

Mike89 Mike89 writes  |  more than 6 years ago

Mike89 (1006497) 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."

How high will these rates be? Around 100% of a small webcasters revenue, give or take a few points, in most cases. How did this happen? The RIAA told the CRB thats what they wanted, and the CRB just gave it to them. Save Net Radio has information on ways you can help stop this."
