Default ACTA: No more ISP liability

A new leaked version of the controversial ACTA could be good news for ISPs, as they may no longer be liable for their subscriber's potentially illegal usage.

By making ISPs liable for what its subscribers do, it would put the onus on ISPs to tackle the ever growing problem of online piracy, something that ISPs say would be unworkable and expensive, with costs passed onto subscribers as a result.

Had the liability clause been retained, it would have forced parties to the treaty to adopt laws that would punish ISPs for not handling piracy, which would most likely lead to some kind of three-strikes system as currently deployed in France and being planned for the UK.

But opponents of the treaty, including The Pirate Party Australia, still fear that the final version will still leave the door open for a three-strikes system to be adopted.
