The High Court in Singapore has ordered an ISP (PacNet) to hand over the personal details of it's customers who used BitTorrent to share Japanese anime titles. Titles such as Bleach, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Mobile Suit Gundam in 2000, which where distributed by the anti-p2p company Odex.
Previously Odex's ruling to obtain the IPs from the ISP PacNet where rejected on the grounds that Odex did not own the full copyrights of the shows it was distributing. However, in 2007, Odex added the names of the real six Japanese copyright holders to its case (GDH, Kadokawa Pictures, Showgate, Sunrise, TV Tokyo MediaNet and Yomiuri Telecasting). Which, turns out, was a smart move on their part. The real copyright holders are in a position to sue, so the Justice Woo Bih Li overturned the previous decision and granted them full access to the ISP records. This decision will likely pave the way to taking legal action against hundreds more Anime BitTorrent users.
