    ““drastic reduction” in piracy in Australia” or rather, those that were pirating in Australia now appear to be elsewhere, courtesy of VPN. I’m reminded of herding cats.

    By 90%? Sounds like Village Roadshow’s anti-piracy mercenaries are fudging the figures. Not like VR’s executives will know any better.

    Thank Trump that at least they won’t have the TPP cudgel to wield.
