The CEO of Quickflix has called on Netflix to "play by the rules" and to stop what it calls a breach of copyright by allowing "back door" access to its service in Australia.
After duking it out in the media for months, ISPs, rights holders, and lobby groups have met face-to-face to solve Australia's piracy problem. But what are the real-world stats behind the arguments and just how big is the problem?
Despite calls from rights holders for a three strikes response to piracy, a leading copyright academic has said there is "little-to-no scientifically credible evidence" that such schemes work.
Foxtel and Choice have locked horns over content pricing, with Choice arguing that consumers should not have to "pay a premium" for top shows as Foxtel accuses it of being "disingenuous".
An ISP industry body has offered in-principle support of site blocking to stop piracy, but says it is a "blunt instrument" and that rights holders should foot the bill.
A new ad campaign from Choice is calling on politicians to "work smart, not hard" against piracy, while the group says Australia should legalise the circumvention of geoblocking.
As the attorney-general looks to block overseas piracy sites, one government agency has admitted staff responsible for making siteblocking requests were not fully aware of how the process worked.
As the who's-who of the content industry gathered to launch a new guide to digital content, the head of ARIA says piracy doesn't just affect the big fish.
The two politicians behind Australia's latest piracy discussion paper have contradicted each other on who should foot the bill for reform.
Choice and iiNet say the paper won't address the problem, Foxtel calls it a "positive step" -- the Government's anti-piracy discussion paper has already divided the industry.
