Tech Liberty on Copyright/Filesharing
Tech Liberty has made a submission on the Copyright (Infringing File Sharing) Amendment Bill.
This is the replacement for the earlier s92A of the Copyright Bill. The original version was flawed on a number of grounds and highly offensive to civil liberties with its lack of due process ("guilt upon accusation") and intrusions into privacy.
The new bill is significantly better but Tech Liberty remains concerned that internet disconnection continues as a possible punishment.
