Australian ISP iiNet Fights MPAA Trolling

Rather, it’s because iiNet’s executives aren’t idiots, and they know exactly what’s going on here. It’s not about stopping infringement, it’s about copyright trolling, which iiNet uses the more polite term for: “speculative invoicing.” Speculative invoicing, as practiced overseas, commonly involves sending intimidating letters of demand to subscribers seeking significant sums for an alleged infringement. These letters often threaten court action and point to high monetary penalties if sums are not paid.
