The Australian Federal Court will be investigating the technology used by copyright litigant Dallas Buyers Club LLC to find out that it was the customers of Australia’s second-largest internet service provider, iiNet Limited, who were illegally downloading copies of the 2013 Oscar-winning American biographical drama film Dallas Buyers Club, ZDNet reported on November 10.
Dallas Buyers Club LLC has sued iiNet and other internet service providers including Dodo Services Pty Limited, Amnet Broadband Pty Limited, Adam Internet Pty Limited, among others, to allow the company to get customer details for IP addresses that illegally downloaded the film.
During the first day of trial at the Federal Court in Sydney, it was revealed that Dallas Buyers Club LLC had been requesting private customer information from iiNet since May 2013, although the movie itself was only released in late 2013. iiNet is particularly concerned with how, exactly, the company learned its customers were downloading the movie.
