Kiwi ISP Calls for Law to Verify Rights Owner’s ID

Kiwi ISP Calls for Law to Verify Rights Owner’s ID

The last news is that a report has emerged saying that New Zealand’s service provider has troubles with identifying where the copyright complaints come from. Well, that’s OK, since sometimes it was unable to identify the accused copyright violator either. Finally, the New Zealand legislation doesn’t force service providers to process those complaints.


Kiwi ISP Telecom is now processing a number of complaints from almost anyone filing them, regardless of their location. However, as the National Business Review says, current legislation of the country doesn’t demand providers to process copyright violation complaints. Anyway, that hasn’t deterred them from fighting the cases of infringement.

Telecom has voluntarily begun to process copyright complaints from nearly anyone filing one and to forward the complaints to their users if possible, including the complaints coming from abroad. As the report points out, one of the major country’s internet service providers has already started processing infringement warnings, regardless of the fact New Zealand lacks any legislation demanding them to do so.

As Mr Chivers said when making a submission on the oncoming Copyright Amendment Bill, there have been a great number of complaints sent to the ISP, with lots of them originating from the sources the ISP couldn’t even identify. Only within one night the ISP has got 500 warnings from a couple of entities based in the United States it was unfamiliar with. The time spent on each complaint is estimated as 20 minutes, with the result that often the alleged infringer can’t be identified.

Telecom is starting to be concerned with such volume of complaints and now calls for an amendment in the country’s law that would demand rights owners’ identities be verified. This will be another addition to the Kiwi’s “three-strikes” law, facing strong opposition.

It’s actually quite a live issue how there’s so little regard for the possibility that somebody can send a false complaint to somebody else. Actually, it would be fair if along with requirement for ISP to act on copyright complaints there would be a demand to scrutinize the complaining party.

So, it’s an example of why a “three-strikes” legislation can be poorly enforced, alongside with an example of why this law rushed through a legal process is quite a bad idea.

kenismut avatarwell if the accusers cant provide identities for themselves then I guess they dont have a right to be heard. In a court you cant make a statement to a judge without first identifying yourself so this should be no different no identity no case......
