Remember the mostest Twanzphobic Oscars last year? Yep, teh horrors of it all, a manz pretending to be a manz pretending to be a woman! Yep, that’s right, Jared Leto twanzphobically accepting the Oscar for his twanzfaced-womanface.
The film that Leto, a manz playing a twanz, was The Dallas Buyer’s Club.
The film is back in the news again, apparently thousands of peoples downloaded the film illegally off the internutz, and now the Australian Federal Court has made a ruling that ISPs must hand over the names and addresses of the Aussies who illegally downloaded/shared the film.
IF you’ve downloaded the film Dallas Buyers Club illegally, could you be hit with a $9000 fine?
That’s the average amount rights holders have tried to extract from illegal downloaders internationally, and after yesterday’s Federal Court ruling, there are around 4,700 Australians who could be feeling pretty nervous.
The landmark case between internet service provider iiNet and the rights holders of the award-winning film is tipped to have long lasting implications for the ongoing fight against illegal downloading.
Yesterday’s decision requires iiNet and other ISPs to divulge the identity and personal details of customers whose IP address was found to have shared the film Dallas Buyers Club illegally.
The ruling means that the company will now be given the contact details of the offenders, and will be able to pursue them directly for compensation. It also means more than a few Australian internet users will probably be nervously checking their mailboxes in the next few weeks.
Well, most likely these will be Aussie twanz and twanz cultists who have downloaded the film.
Rest assured, 100% of twanzbillionaire twanzsquirrels have no cause to worry about an email from the DBC production company! Also rest assured, Laydee cries of twanzphobia won’t get you out of this one!
Arrrr, hoist the Jolly
