The full bench of the Federal Court has requested iiNet and the film studios put together a detailed "decision tree" to help it work through a mountain of evidence and legal arguments delivered in Court this week.Justice Arthur Emmett requested the 'tree' document be submitted by the parties after an intense four days of hearings in the studios' appeal of the copyright case against ISP iiNet.
The film industry wants to make ISPs responsible for the actions of users on their networks."We'll now take some time," Justice Emmett said in closing remarks."We'll wait until we see [a folder of] re-organised materials [to be supplied by iiNet's counsel] and also a decision tree."What I have in mind is a fairly detailed document. It would also be helpful to have a reference to submissions where each of those particular issues [in the tree] was dealt with - bearing in mind that we probably won't be writing [our decision] this week."Justice Emmett stood the matter over for a fortnight to allow the parties to prepare the decision tree document.
