How Dallas Did It: Not Your Business, Judge Rules.

A Sydney judge has ruled that explanations of how connections of the Dallas Buyers Club movie obtained a list of the IP addresses of Australians who allegedly illegally downloaded the movie of that name should remain secret – at least for the time being.Justice Perram in the
Federal Court said that, due to the lack of a public hearing thus far, the
court would reject applications from ZDNet, the ABC, and the Australian Screen
Association to access material that reveals the mechanism.

It may be revealed however when the case brought by Dallas Buyers Club against
several Australian ISPs, notably iiNet, gets its preliminary discovery
application heard on February 17.

The ISPs are resisting a demand by the Dallas group to reveal the identities of
the IP addresses used to download the movie.

According to a ZDNet report, it is believed that the Dallas Buyers Club
connections made use of a system called Maverickeye UG.

Maverickeye says its software makes it possible to detect as well as retrace
copyright infringements and “provide technical evidence to illegal acts on
the Internet”.
