RIAA of New Zealand CEO defends new draconian law

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 5 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "Campbell Smith, CEO of the RIAA of New Zealand has written an opinion piece for one of New Zealand's largest daily papers where he justifies New Zealand's new presumed guilty law copyright law. This law allows RIAA members to watch file sharing activity and notify ISPs of users who are downloading material. The copyright holder can then demand that an ISP disconnects that user — without the user ever having a chance to demonstrate their evidence. New Zealand law used to be base on principals of natural justice and fair play — now I guess its just about buying politicians."
