I was just wondering if anyone else here is going to be affected by Section 92 of the Copyright Amendment Act that may take into effect in New Zealand in March.
Section 92 of the Copyright Amendment Act assumes Guilt Upon Accusation and forces the termination of internet connections and websites without evidence, without a fair trial, and without punishment for any false accusations of copyright infringement. We should speak out against injustices like Guilt Upon Accusation being done in the name of artists and protecting creativity.
For those who are interested here's the site that explains more about Section 92. creativefreedom.org.nz/goals.html
I'm not an artist or anything, I just want to be able to access and download videos of Arashi and the j-dramas I watch. My friend told me last week that a close friend of hers has already had his internet disconnected for minor downloading.
This sucks ass.
I'm really sorry for using this comm for this post, if it's not allowed. I just want to know if there are others affected and what they think of it/going to do about it.
