Copyright Act – IPAP Reports

Posted on January 29, 2013

When the new three-strikes copyright infringement scheme was implemented, it included section 122T that imposed some obligations on IPAPs (ISPs) to collect and retain data, and publish an annual report. As Sam Russell reminded us today, the first of these reports was due by 31st December 2012 for the period 1st October to 30th September.

Here's the reports we know of:

  • Actrix - the most minimal report yet (but claim that they received no notices).
  • DTS - no complaints received.
  • Maxnet - no complaints received and a very minimal report (bottom of page).
  • Orcon - received 234 complaints, sent 198 notices, received 16 challenges.
  • Slingshot (PDF) - received 473 complaints, sent 398 notices, received 14 challenges.
  • Telecom - takes a very minimal approach, just states it has complied.
  • TelstraClear - received 818 complaints, issued 540 notices, received 25 challenges.
  • Vodafone - received 538 complaints, issued 350 notices, received 21 challenges.
  • Xtreme - received 2 complaints, issued 0 notices.

We have asked 2 Degrees, Compass, Inspire, Snap, Vocus, and Xnet where their reports are.

We'll add more as we find them and do some collation/analysis when we have enough. One thing that is noticeable is that very few of the notices are being challenged by the recipients.
