A federal court ruling in Australia on April 7 said that internet service providers must provide the film company that made the Dallas Buyers Club information of those who illegally downloaded the film, according to Lawyers Weekly.
Although this marks a large change in how copyright cases have been handled in the past, Mark Vincent from Shelton IP said it would be impractical for film studios to file a lawsuit against every individual who downloaded an illegal copy of their film. Vincent also said film companies would not gain much from pursuing small-scale downloaders, as the financial gain would be fairly minuscule.
