Music Industry Piracy Investigations – the Australian group who investigate copyright ‘piracy’ – have a new website. It has all kinds of useful little tools, like ‘Enforcement Kits’ to assist Law Enforcement bodies, and descriptions of law relating to infringement.

One thing in favour of the site is that it describes ‘piracy’ as ‘the deliberate infringement of copyright and/or trade marks on a commercial scale’. That is (correctly) narrower than some claims we’ve seen from the more militant owners.

But I’m really not sure about the ‘Am I a Pirate’ page, which has a whole lot of material on personal copying. The implication – though I can’t see it in text – is that personal copying will make you a pirate. Ick.
