Telco liability for customers downloading 

The gloves are off in Ireland (or Eire): the record companies are finally going after the telephone company/ISP whose customers are alleged to be downloading infringing copies of the music ...

IPKat has links here.

An ISP here has gone down big time for authorising copyright infringement by hosting a website which had links to infringing sites and advertising its services on that website in return.  The Irish complaint seems to go much further than that.

Interesting question whether a telco in Australia can monitor your (I mean, the customer's) use of the telecommunications service?
