Section 92 of the Copyright Amendment Act. S92 assumes 'Guilt Upon Accusation' - cutting off internet connections and websites based on accusations of Copyright infringement, without evidence or even a trial.

New Zealand's new Copyright Law presumes 'Guilt Upon Accusation' and will Cut Off Internet Connections without a trial. CreativeFreedom.org.nz is against this unjust law - help us

"On 28 February 2009, S92 will come into effect in New Zealand if there is no positive action on the part of the Government to change it. To date the Government has shown support for the act and, unless there is major public protest against it, it will "roll over" in to law." - Creative Freedom

If you have ever shared a file, remixed music or altered an image you need to view this website.

If this law is passed anyone who uses the internet to share files could potentially lose their connection without even as much as a warning.

Have a read and if you agree, sign up to stop the law rolling over.
