Looks like this has come to an end, well at lease this time.

They can argue about it being about the moral/legal high ground as much as they like, but at the end of the day they stopped pursuing it when the prospect of decent profits went out the window.

As others said in the comments to the story, If the studios gave Australians the same access to movies in a timely manner and reasonably pricing instead of gouging then there would be no problem!,but as long as they treat Australia like a completely separate, closer market to the rest of the world then the "Problem" is going to persist.

I find it quite amusing because it seems they'd actually have a case if they just stuck to the issue at hand. Instead they wanted to turn it into a way to squeeze money out of people as a general punishment against piracy, rather than having each individual corporate entity file their own individual claim for each case of theft.
