blog Given iiNet’s conclusive victory in its High Court defence against AFACT this morning, it seems an appropriate time to remind readers of Communications Minister Stephen Conroy’s opinion of the case, aired in March 2009. According to a ZDNet.com.au report at the time, Conroy said:
“I saw iiNet’s defence in court under oath; they have no idea if their customers are downloading illegally music or movies. Stunning defence, stunning defence … I thought a defence in terms of ‘we had no idea’ … belongs in a Yes Minister episode.”
Yes, Minister. Or maybe … no, Minister?
