it's been a very long story:
http://www.zdnet.com/article/dallas-buy ... ourt-case/
"Dallas Buyers Club (DBC) has declined to make an application or file for leave to appeal the Australian Federal Court's ruling
in its bid to claim damages from the almost 5,000 people who allegedly infringed on the studio's copyright by downloading the film of the same name,".

- they finally gave up - the idea of using US based patent laws in Australia - Finally Failed.
the Supreme Court Judge didn't buy their idea.

"Thousands of Australians who illegally downloaded copies of Dallas Buyers Club "can breathe a sigh of relief" after an ongoing legal case was abandoned by the film's makers, but experts have warned there is trouble ahead for those who continue the practice.
