iiNet vows free legal advice to Dallas Buyers Club pirates

INTERNET service provider iiNet has promised pro-bono legal services to customers embroiled in the Dallas Buyers Club downloading scandal.

Last month Voltage Pictures, the owner of Dallas Buyers Club, successfully argued in the Federal Court that internet providers should hand over personal details of customers suspected of downloading the film.

On a company blog, iiNet said it would be ordered to hand over, from tomorrow, the name and physical address details of customers whose accounts were suspected of downloading.

"We don't support or condone copyright infringement," the blog said. "But we couldn't sit by and have our customers potentially bullied by the process of speculative invoicing."

The blog said iiNet was working with a law firm that had offered pro-bono legal services but a final deal had not yet been reached.
