New Zealand’s Labor Party is Now Against “Three-Strikes”

New Zealand’s Labor Party is Now Against “Three-Strikes”

Kiwi Labor Party has come a full circle now, believing that government should better spend money on taking advantages on the Internet and developing methods of profitable online distribution. So now Labor Party states an opposition to “three-strikes” that allow disconnecting file-sharers.


However, it was the Labor Party 2 years ago which was first amending the New Zealand’s Copyright Act in order to ensure that copyright legislation keeps up to rapidly developing digital technology. As a result, it introduced the controversial 92A Section, vaguely requiring Internet Service Providers to develop and implement a policy allowing account termination of repeat infringers. But after at least 1 ISP refused to participate and considering there were no developed mechanisms for appeal, New Zealand’s Prime Minister decided to throw out the amendment.

Then the story broke the surface again, when last June experts in Internet law and intellectual property started developing a new copyright law later formally submitted by Simon Power, the country’s Commerce Minister. The new legislation repeals Section 92A and introduces a “three-strikes” regime enabling a Court to force disconnecting file-sharers. But the Labor Party now stands opposed to it.

The spokesperson for the party says they believe this “three-strikes” legislation won’t address the fundamental core of the violations and illegal P2P file-sharing. With the digital world developing, the companies that originally used to control and manage the intellectual content distribution are now losing such control. Increasing peer-to-peer volumes of illegal file-sharing worldwide indicate the inability of the market to distribute and control the material. Such intense community reaction to the Section 92A proposal made Labor party to figure out last year that the issue had to be re-addressed.

The party succeeded to realize that a better way for New Zealanders is to understand how they can use the Internet for making a profit from digital distribution services.

Good for the Party. They are 100% right – instead of continuing their attempts of implementing filtering and censorship, which won’t ever address the absence of a viable business model meeting the demands of the digital age, copyright owners should better welcome new technology and adapt to it.

SnakeyB avatarThanks SaM, I am wondering if they really have had a change of heart or is an election on the horizon? That being said a little bit of good news is always nice to read whatever the reason.

No avatarWell now I'm here in that country, Labour is not in power. The right wing war mongering National Party is in power. They have just introduced $18,500 fines for copyright infringement on the net, but leave us users a free service too defend ourselves called the copyright tribunal. No cases as yet publicly and I would like too see the copyright owners lose out on there requests for costs if they win. Then they wont even bother paying for actions through the District Courts should that happen and NZ just has a bit of paper and sum bums on seats too keep the international lobbyists quiet. Another thing is Labour let us have one copy. If we only had one, it wasnt an infringement, I believe National took that away from us along with cutting welfare and its starting too privatize prisons too take advantage of the poor. (as usual).
