The facts and figures, as mentioned are ludicrous. Apparently downloaders are the sole reason for the "decline" of the entertainment industry. Never mind that box-office records are continually being set, and the fact that there are ever-increasing (legal) ways for customers to get their entertainment fixes other than the tradional mediums.
I live in a household with 3 other downloaders and dont want their actions to cause me to have to pay fines, or receive BS notices.
Can anyone else see this having an adverse effect on internet prices???
The above is why the act is ridiculous, and all it will do is get more NZers hit in the pocket, or stop our internet use.
Or perhaps this is just NZ bowing to our American overlords in order to be right royally shafted???
