Wow! That's a seriously eye-opening update on the court case.

Not.

A man from the Cape Flats, one Mr Norton, appeared in the Cape Town Commercial Crimes Court on Wednesday, 26 February 2014.

Corné Guldenpfennig, CEO of the Southern African Federation Against Copyright Theft (Safact) said that the case was postponed until 4 April 2014.

Norton stands accused of uploading a “high profile South African film” to others using BitTorrent technology via The Pirate Bay.

Guldenpfennig previously said that they would bring charges against Norton in terms of the Counterfeit Goods Act and article 27 of the Copyright Act for uploading the film.

The case was postponed for pleading and for the provision of further details, as well as to establish a date for the hearing, Guldenpfennig said.
Where is the update, we already know that it is postponed.

How many SAFACT partners is indeed SAFACT partners... I mean really piracysucks.co.za (their FAQ redirection) owned by Prezence which according to their site did the Ster-Kinekor and Bid or Buy Android app, anyway it is presented as case studies???

SAFACT is even operated by Triloq Technologies... media companies...

Why is these companies even involved?

It was previously moved to a different court and postponed to today. Norton appeared today and it was postponed again. Not Earth-shattering, but still an update.

On TV you received it via a channel that is legal and you paid for (TV license). You are free to record it for your own use, but if you copy that VHS and send it to others you would be in trouble. The guy is not charged with downloading but distributing (clearly safact do not understand torrents as technically everyone distributes lol).

Blink and you'll miss it

So this is what didn't happen:
The case was postponed for pleading and for the provision of further details, as well as to establish a date for the hearing, Guldenpfennig said.
No pleading, no details, no date. So what did happen?
