Blackout to demonstrate against S92A

, posted: 17-Feb-2009 06:36

To protest against Section 92A of New Zealand law, which will come into effect on February 28th and which allows Internet users to be disconnected through unproven accusation, this blog and many other sites are changing their color theme to black. Information about the blackout campaign and S92A can be found here and here. Geekzone officially participates as well.

My comment on Section 92A can be found here.
