Of the three Copyright Tribunal cases to be heard currently, the first one's just been dropped. Why? Nobody knows. RIANZ isn't saying.
Interesting things: the accused was the ISP account holder, a student sharing a place with others who also used the Internet connection.
The cost of the five songs downloaded is NZ$11.95 but RIANZ wanted NZ$1,075.50 because it estimated the music was shared/downloaded 90 times in total.
A high deterrent penalty of NZ$1,250 was also asked for.
