Abstract:     
This is an exploration of the contours of copyright authorisation liability as that liability relates to a case involving the Australian internet service provider iiNet and thirty-four film and television companies. A primer on copyright authorisation liability in Australia is provided, together with an economic policy explanation for why such liability exists. The findings in Roadshow Films v iiNet will then be described, together with a critique of certain aspects of the trial judgment.
