Will the AFACT v iiNet case help reduce the rate of online piracy?

Have your say in this Computerworld Poll

A Federal Court judge last week threw out a high-profile copyright infringement case against ISP, iiNet, brought by the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT). The judge found the ISP had no liability for the instances of copyright infringement that occurred on its network.

While the decision was a significant blow to AFACT the organisation can still appeal all the way up to the High Court. So the case is expected to continue. Our question is, do you think the case will help reduce the rate of online piracy?
