Could each of the panellists give us:
  • their views on the proposed ACTA treaty and in particular the portions relating to ISPs and the internet; and
  • if their party were in Government, would it be their Government's policy to sign it?

It has been suggested that privacy in the online world no longer means secrecy, but rather the ability to control who sees what information, in a more graded sense. How would your party update New Zealand's legislative framework around privacy and intellectual property to ensure it stays relevant in the 21st century?

Why is it that I am allowed to transfer a copy of a music CD to my MP3 player, but I am not allowed to do the same with my DVDs?
