That was sudden, hadn't heard of this for some time, suddenly it is being made law today. 

I wonder if the Telcos are ready to implement this yet?

I think it is probably a good thing to fight piracy, but, the implementation could be quite flawed.

I cant believe that our government would use the guise of the Christchurch earthquake to rush through legislation that is totally irrelevant to what is happening down there. Do they really think we are so dumb that we wouldnt notice? I actually find this reprehensible when so many people in ChCh are still suffering. I am rapidly losing what little respect I had left for politicians. Honestly....WTF???

Really?

It is exactly the sort of thing i imagined them doing - let it go quite for a few months then try and slip it under the radar.

If they had it their way the only way people would find out is when they receive their first warning.

Im not surprised that they would do it, just that they would use the guise of the earthquake. How low can you go?

I think there's a big movie being made at the moment, something about hobbits or something, movie studios don't like file sharing, governments like movie studios.

2 and 2 = ?

Voting Labour this year. Even if Goff has a mole, I prefer that to a complete disregard for democracy.

Wasn't Labour the one who originally introduced the act? Let me see... Judith Tizard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_Tizard). Yep, that's the one.

just another weak minded gov to please the yanks

one step closer to new world order

we need more brave wikileaks people to expose their lying a*;s

i think soon there will be a new way of doing p2p .... force more control evolves the web to get around it.. you you ever watches the new series of hungry beast from australia (great docu news series if not seen it) they talk about this thing of copyright and privacy
and how the gov dont like us knowing their secrets but want to know all our secrets..
find the show and have a watch.. well worth it..

another
good series you can find on p2p to watch called the internet revolution... its unlikely tvnz would show suck quality shows :)

The greens have been very opposed to this bill its even written in the comments section for the bill. So they might be useful as a counterpoint to Labor and Nationals corporatism. Even though I don't support lots of their stances.
