Yesterday, lawyers acting for the rightsholders to Dallas Buyers Club dropped their case against iiNet, giving up on petitioning for the user details of 4726 alleged pirates. We’ve had a few tweets and comments from people saying they would download Dallas Buyers Club in celebration of the verdict, and we think that’s just rude.

SBS On Demand has the multi-Oscar-winning film up on its (excellent) streaming service right now, and it’ll stay live for viewing for the next 25 days. It’s a good film, too — you should watch it. Sure, there are a couple of ads, but that’s how you support content creators if you’re not paying for a movie ticket or buying the DVD.
