So, what do we think should be a part of the notice sent to accused infringers?

So far, as far as information relating to the alleged infringing file, I think:

- Date and time of infringement in New Zealand time.
- Tracker(s) if any, alleged offending content was tracked by.
- Complete file/folder name of alleged infringing content.
- Hash of alleged infringing content as reported by tracker.
- IP/Hostname of alleged offender.

Giving this detail will be trivial for agents monitoring file sharing networks but will make it easy for alleged infringers to identify whether or not they have infringed copyright because they will have a good amount of information to check logs and elsewhere for proof either way.

As for the rest of the form there will need to be a clear section detailing the steps a user may take in order to challenge a notice as well as options available to them and a description of the entire possible process.

Umm shouldn't the accuser actually show evidence of the breach? Maybe a network dump showing the file being transferred and that extracted into a file? That above info doesn't actually prove anything.

File names and directory names are not a copyright issue. It is the actual content and should be up to them to prove that the content of the files is what they say it is. Is it a crime to call a home video of your kids playing with transformers transformers.avi? That content is not copyrighted by the entertainment industry so they shouldn't be sending notices for it and it should be up to them to prove that is not the case.

A Hash from the tracker yeah and they have proof that is a real file and not a fake or a virus?

They also need to should you were actually sharing and not just being framed like some printers in the US http://dmca.cs.washington.edu/faq.html#q10

This is my draft submission. I will remind everyone that submissions close this Friday and please send something along.

Remember that you're guilty until proven innocent with the law in it's current form.

Yeah the whole point of the MED submission is about what the Copyright Holder provides and if enough people ask for real evidence hopefully they will put in something that kinda resembles what someone may call evidence. It is better than nothing. I do highly recommend everyone makes a submission by Friday

Hi All,

Just noticed this up on Wired. Seems that internet access is now a human right. Wonder what this will do to the legislation.

Yes, "A United Nations report said Friday that disconnecting people from the internet is a human rights violation and against international law."

The disconnection issue here was put back 2 years. Far easier to stick to the fines, up to $15000 is enough of a penalty.

Wow...

human righthuman right- (law) any basic right or freedom to which all human beings are entitled and in whose exercise a government may not interfere (including rights to life and liberty as well as freedom of thought and expression and equality before the law)
right - an abstract idea of that which is due to a person or governmental body by law or tradition or nature; "they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights"; "Certain rights can never be granted to the government but must be kept in the hands of the people"- Eleanor Roosevelt; "a right is not something that somebody gives you; it is something that nobody can take away"
right to privacy - right to be free of unsanctioned intrusion

I guess we can now add LOLcats to that list.

Idiots.

I would have thought that there are enough clever people out there that a software app could be made available to allow us to have an unlisted ip address just like my phone This would save all the problems of he said she said I t would be a service to humanity to make sure that human rights arn't violated as we all know how important that is in Australia and new Zealand and most importantly it would allow me to vote national again rather than greens.

So clever people is it possible to actually effectifly block my IP address ? somone suggetsed that using Open Dns and another program I cant remeber was "quite" effective

we could just make a letter template, get lots of people on geekzone to print it out, sign it and send it off to parliament since its free to post there im pretty sure. They'll have to reply to at least one of us.

The human rights issue relates to disconnection. What you are proposing is avoidance so when you break the law you arent caught. Maybe you can also get an app that tells you when there are no police in the area so you can burgle in safety? Your "he said, she said" argument is not relevant. If "he" didnt break the law, "she" won't be knocking on your door.

While there are many true and valid concerns over this law, I get tired of those who have issues with it invading their illegal activity.

You are making the assumption (guilty until proven Innocent) that I am breaking or intend to break the law I am trying to avoid false prosecution, from a law that says you are guilty until proven innocent
Trying to protect myself just like the doctor or the PM who both have unlisted phone numbers. Ok maybe not quite the same thing but you get the point. I dont know how its gone overseas but I imagine it will be a horendous expense for business trying to make sure that they are safe from prosecution if one of there workers accesss sites that re deemed illigal. As for th erest of us with wireless connections as far as I understand if you hack my wireless Im still respsonsible as the account holder.
