They are asking the court to accept that essentially, BitTorrent can not be used to distribute pirated content because a packet does not represent a substantial portion of the infringing material. They are also hedging their bets purely on the strength of the movie studios "forensic" evidence. This ruling will go straight to the heart of Australia's copyright law.
At last, an ISP willing to stand up for its customers! Let's hope we have a technically-informed judge.
