"Next month, New Zealand is scheduled to implement Section 92 of the Copyright Amendment Act. The controversial act provides 'Guilt Upon Accusation,' which means that if a file-sharer is simply accused of copyright infringement he/she will be punished with summary Internet disconnection. Unlike most laws, this one has no appeal process and no punishment for false accusation, because they were removed after public consultation. The ISPs are up in arms and now artists are taking a stand for fair copyright."
There's a petition here : http://creativefreedom.org.nz/
Nowhere to be found on any news site, all over the web otherwise. Search 'Guilt Upon Accusation'or 'Section 92 of the Copyright Amendment Act.' It's due to come into law on the 28th of Feb.
