I havnt seen anything around the NZ net about these, I figure I might just be the first in the country.. Yay me :-P  Section 53 (92B) of the Copyright (New Technologies) Amendment Act gives the ISP's alot of leeway in what number of offences defines a repeat infringer, but WxC have apparently decided that infringing twice is sufficent for termination. I find it highly ironic that WxC launch the new torrent plans at the same time they start strictly enforcing the new copyright law. Shame on you WxC, shame on you!

This was discussed many times here on Geekzone, so I am sorry to say you are not the first one.

It is our policy to lock all discussions on copyright infringement. There is a very simple reason for that: from previous experience people have been downloading copyrighted material so there's no reason to discuss something that is clearly against the TOS.
