iiNet: What of the safe harbours?

Justice Cowdroy’s decision in Roadshow v iiNet held that a person who provides facilities that are used for infringement but does not play a more active part — for example by intentionally designing the system to profit, or providing facilities in circumstances where there are only limited non-infringing uses, or explicitly inviting or promoting the use of the system for infringement — will not be held to ‘authorise’ those infringements, because it does not provide the ‘means’ for infringement.
