IANAL but that letter doesn't look to be sent under New Zealand law since it is clearly an American company treating the matter under American law...

Have you pointed out to the copyright holders that you can't view said material via the CBS website and that if they were to make the content available in such a manner it might help stem the tide of people downloading material?

Just a thought...

cheers

And yes, definitely a US letter sent under US law. The NZ law will require the rights holder to identify a number of different aspects including time/date of download etc as well as IP address and file details.

I see these all the time in my role. They hold no weight within New Zealand.

At least, not currently.

So, are you guilty?


I'd be cancelling my contract with your ISP for handing out your private information to 3rd parties.

The new copyright laws do not take affect until september.

His ISP haven't disclosed his details anywhere I can see?

The notice came in, they looked up who the end user was and forward it onto him.  That's all they've done.

Yep, I admit guilt. I'm a sole occupant.

I actually dont have too many problems with WorldNet, I know some have in the past, but i'm on the unlimited plan (mainly due to downloading linux iso's) and get alright speeds across the board considering i'm a wee way from the exchange.

Havent pointed it out, but if sites like hulu.com worked in NZ i'd use them, even if they had adverts every 10mins..

Well, perhaps not handed out details but they are certainly agreeing to forward irrelevant spam to subscribers based on a request from a 3rd party.

Yip agree. I'd even pay for the ability to access and put up with ads. But I cant so that leaves me with 2 options... dont watch it... or... ... ...

BTW... I'm fully assuming the new law isnt retroactive, that is you cant get a strike for an infringement that happened prior to September, have I got that right?

I love this line:
We also would request that you inform the individual who engaged in this =
conduct that legitimate copies of CBS content are widely available for =
viewing online, for example on www.cbs.com and many other sites that =
participate in the CBS Audience Network.=20


Some fact checking would be nice..
