+ - P2P tracking in Australia exposed->

Submitted by AHuxley
AHuxley (892839) writes "An Australian ISP is in Federal Court,in an attempt by the film industry to hold service providers responsible for any illegal downloads on their networks.
Some insight into Australian p2p investigations have been hinted at in court.
The idea that a investigator put a honeypot [file] on a p2p network and watched who download the file seems to
now be [the investigator] downloading from the [isp] customer.
A portion of the file of interest is then downloaded over time."
