As the natural world meets the digital opportunities are opening up for artists to connect with new audiences across the world. However, with the digitisation of media the lines between use and copy have become blurred. Laws regulating the act of copying have failed to keep pace with technology and soon ISPs will be forced to take down internet connections and websites of anyone accused (not convicted) of copyright infringement. Copyright law is now having the effect of limiting artists, restricting businesses, and harming public rights. The Creative Freedom Foundation speaks for artists concerned at this trend and through Our Goals we seek to bring Copyright Law into the 21st Century.


Section 92 - It's about to become law :( bend over, grit your teeth, and thank your politicians for their insightful decision (both labour and national). Awesome.

Quite frankly, that legislation is one of the biggest pieces of crap I have ever seen. It is about the same kind of quality as ........

California ...
Animals are banned from mating publicly within 1,500 feet of a tavern, school, or place of worship.

Arkansas ...
It is illegal to sell peanuts in Lee County after sundown on Wednesday.

Nyala Nevada ...
A man is forbidden from buying drinks for more than three people other than himself at any one period during the day.

Germany ...
A pillow can be considered a “passive” weapon.

Thailand ...
It is illegal to leave your house if you are not wearing underwear.

England ...
No cows may be driven down the roadway between 10 AM and 7 PM unless there is prior approval from the Commissioner of Police.

Pretty sure its illegal to walk down the street backwards in new york eating a bag of peanuts... Tbh i reckon if the government made more laws like that and less laws like s92 then nz would be a better country.

Spot on! Clearly what's needed is some tough love.

It's for their own good. They're happy to make all-knowing wise decisions on our behalf, which effect many aspects of our lives, so it's time we did something for them. For their own good, naturally. Bring on the "Democratic Peoples Public Politician Floggings of Justice", twice weekly. :thumbsup:

You've got my vote.

In time honored internet fashion, I think perhaps my feelings towards the worthless political minds that came up with, supported, and ultimately passed, this s92 law, can be best summed up by the following animated gif....

http://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/22872 ... s-a-relief wrote:A cabinet decision to scrap and rewrite a controversial change to copyright law that would have obliged internet providers to cut off customers who infringed copyright has been welcomed by the recording industry and internet providers.

Section 92a, which was due to come into effect on Friday, would have obliged internet providers (ISPs) to terminate the accounts of repeat copyright infringers "in reasonable circumstances".

Commerce Minister Simon Power said the clause would be amended.

"This legislation was put in place to combat unlawful file-sharing which facilitates copyright infringement on a large scale. While the Government remains intent on tackling this problem, the legislation itself needs to be re- examined and reworked."
