Online auction behemoth eBay has rejected key measures proposed by the federal government to tackle online copyright infringement.
A government proposal to "clarify" whether Internet service providers can be considered to have authorised online copyright infringement by their customers has alarmed universities.
Who would pay for a regime that targets customers of Internet service providers accused of breaching copyright is still a point of contention between rights holders and ISPs, judging from a public forum hosted in Sydney last night by Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
If the government introduces a system that allows rights holders to force ISPs to block access to piracy websites, more ASIC-style debacles are likely to occur, Google has warned.
Internet service provider iiNet has hit out against what it describes as "stand-over tactics" by content industries and approaches to copyright enforcement that involve ISPs "threatening or disconnecting" customers.
