Optus TVNow

Media release: Optus loss could stifle future cloud innovation in Australia

Today the Full Court of the Federal Court ruled that the TV Now service provided by Optus, which enabled consumers to record free-to-air TV to the cloud for playback on their personal devices, is an infringement of copyright.

The Federal Court considered Optus to be the “maker” of the recording of free-to-air content, despite consumers selecting content to record.

The Australian Digital Alliance is concerned that the Federal Court’s decision could impact on future innovation in cloud-based services in Australia.
