The federal Attorney-General's Department is struggling to keep negotiations to stop peer-to-peer internet piracy on track after the High Court cleared internet service providers of liability for the problem.
The department has been attempting to broker an agreement between content owners and internet carriers for an industry-led regime to deal with the problem since the middle of last year.
However, it is believed the talks have gone backwards since the landmark High Court decision that found Perth-based ISP iiNet could not be held liable for acts of piracy by its subscribers.
It is believed that internet providers have taken a tougher stance with copyright holders demanding more access to content earlier in its distribution cycle before they will agree to an anti-piracy code.
