The court also found that Roberts had breached a copyright, and
penalized him A$2,500 for the illegal use of intellectual property, as
well as that he had "misled and deceived by statements made in his
public lectures" but that this was not conducted in pursuit of trade,
and thus not covered by the above-quoted acts.
Ian Plimer certainly deserves our support. He went out on the limb,
and in my opinion the court failed to support his just cause. If you
wish to help him in meeting his costs, I urge you to contact Barry
Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org for that purpose. The JREF has
already contributed to this effort.
We thank Barry Williams of the Australian Skeptics for this
