New Zealand Postponed “Three-Strikes” Until 2012

New Zealand Postponed “Three-Strikes” Until 2012

The country’s Parliament recommended a number of changes to the Copyright (also known as Infringing File-Sharing) Amendment Bill. The most notable change suggested was a compromise on disconnecting infringers from the web.


The country’s Commerce Select Committee has finally finished scrutinizing the Copyright Amendment Bill and now suggests several amendments to be included in it. Originally, the Bill was developed to amend the Copyright Act of 1994 to provide rights holders with more effective ways to enforce their rights against individuals involved in illegal file-sharing of copyrighted content through the Internet. In short words, the Copyright Amendment Bill is intended to replace Section 92A with a well-known worldwide “three-strikes” regime. The first strike is a detection notice, the 2nd one is a warning, while the 3rd is enforcement. As the Bill initially suggested, after receiving the 3rd notification accused individuals face fines of up to $15,000 per each case of violation, as well as Internet disconnection of up to 6 months.

However, the Parliament decided to put on hold the disconnection clause until it becomes clear that the notification system proved ineffective. That review is scheduled to occur in 2 years. After this period, the Commerce Minister can activate this clause and grant District Courts the power to disconnect accused infringers.

The Select Committee came to such conclusion thanks to the evidence proving that suspension of access to web was potentially disproportionate. Besides, it simply is not going to work right, because people dedicated to persistent and deliberate infringement would be able to bypass the disconnection with numerous ISP connections. Meanwhile, the Committee believes that access to the Internet became as necessary as electricity or telephone, being not just a utility but also enabling work and education opportunities, as well as social and family connections across distances and time zones.

If the Committee really believes in importance of the Internet, then it should realize that it would become even more important in 2 years, which makes disconnection clause even more draconian. Fortunately, the clause will only be enacted if the warnings and fines system proves ineffective.
