Last Friday was the first week of the legal battle between the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT), representing a number of movie studios, and Australia's third-largest internet service provider iiNet.

The trial is a tense stand-off between the movie studios, which allege iiNet supports content piracy, and iiNet, which claims it is not wholly responsible for what its customers use its network for.

ZDNet.com.au reporters Liam Tung and Jacquelyn Holt were at the trial to get the lowdown, and also took to the streets afterwards to see what the general population thinks of the whole mess. You can also follow Liam's live Twitter coverage of the proceedings live on ZDNet.com.au, and a complete archive of our coverage.
