OiNK Admin Found Not Guilty

This is very good news indeed. TorrentFreak has an excellent summary of the arguments of both sides, as well as the ruling. Looks like Mike Masnick was right in his thoughts on the lack of contributory liability. This victory is bitter sweet–as I mentioned, one of the threats of ACTA is obligating signing countries to possibly instituted local laws for contributory infringement. So I am glad to see Ellis go free but it is with the fear that it may be one of the last cases in that country to come to such an outcome.
