New Zealand Copyright Law Doesn’t Respect Human Rights

New Zealand Copyright Law Doesn’t Respect Human Rights

A few days ago the government of New Zealand published details on its debatable “Skynet” file-sharing legislation, explaining how it is planned to be implemented. According to the Green Party, the only problem is that the changes failed to explain why the proposal still doesn’t protect basic human rights.


As a solution for violating copyright legislation 3 times, the Minister of Commerce has been given the authority to enact web disconnection. Meanwhile, Green Party’s ICT spokesman claimed that ever since this legislation had been passed, the United Nations agreed that disconnecting someone from the web comes into conflict with their fundamental human rights. The Green Party’s representative, Gareth Hughes, explained that when the government of New Zealand passed the legislation in question, many MPs simply didn’t realize what they were voting for.

Once the United Nations published an overview of “three-strikes” legislation and made a conclusion that disconnecting people from the Internet violates their basic human rights, the users, ISPs and academics hoped that the country’s government would realize its mistake and ensure making the necessary changes. Unfortunately, the details presented recently showed that it wasn’t the case.

Green Party pointed out that the passed legislation said that the person would be found guilty just by being accused. And when an individual is accused, they will have to prove their innocence. Worse still, the government of New Zealand still has not described how the accused citizens could do that. In addition, Gareth Hughes pointed out that the decision to forbid Internet service providers to entirely recover the cost of processing complaints would make cost of access to the web for New Zealanders increase.

The Green Party fairly pointed out that the details of the legislation were released just 6 weeks before its introduction last year. What is more interesting for the Party is that the country’s government ignored the “zero dollar fine” solution which could be implemented against people found guilty for illegally downloading foreign copyrighted material that was otherwise unavailable in the country. This, the Green Party believes, would be a great way to encourage content creators to make their works available in New Zealand sooner.
