Minister: Sue Mums, Dads, Students To Send Anti-Piracy Message

[Y]esterday, during a televised interview with Rupert Murdoch’s Sky News, [Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull] made comments that transport the debate back many years, raising the specter of tough punitive action to send an anti-piracy message. […] “Rightsholders are not keen on taking people to court, because it doesn’t look good, because it’s bad publicity. What happens if the person you sue is a single mother, what happens if it’s a teenager, what happens if it’s a retiree on a low income?” Turnbull said. “The bottom line is though, rightsholders are going to have to be tactical about who they take to court, who they want to sue.” – Andy,TorrentFreak
