Odex loses in court against PacNet

I can hear a lot of otakus and Odex haters in Singapore rejoicing at this amazing news. From AsiaOne:
In a court ruling, a judge has decided that Pacific Internet (PacNet) does not have to reveal names of subscribers who allegedly downloaded pirated versions of the Japanese cartoons to Japanese anime distributor Odex.

Odex has been demanding the names of up to 1000 PacNet downloaders.

This latest ruling has raised eyebrows because two other Internet service providers (ISP) - SingNet and StarHub - were earlier ordered to give up the names of their subscribers accused of similar violations.
Finally, a judge who isn't afraid to rule the right way! Kudos to the judge and PacNet for standing firm against Odex.
