What does “unlimited” mean?

This is something I’ve posted about on whirlpool.net.au – “unlimited” in the English language means “something without limits.”

To my amusement, some other whirlpool posters think that “unlimited” can mean “something with limits.” Optus used to agree, but no more…

The Sydney Morning Herald reported that Justice North of the Federal Court of Australia thinks that limiting speed after a certain amount of downloads isn’t really “unlimited.”

Us lawyers are a funny lot.
