Creative Freedom Foundation: Blackout

(In New Zealand, under the new National Government), ISPs will soon be forced to take down internet connections and websites of anyone accused (not convicted) of copyright infringement.

The Creative Freedom Foundation have organised a nation-wide Internet Blackout Campaign against Guilt Upon Accusation laws in NZ. The blackout, taking place from 16-23 February, is a reaction to Section 92A of the Copyright Amendment Act, due to come into effect in NZ on February 28 unless the Government suspends or repeals the law.
