LIANZA: Sec 92a - New Zealand publications on copyright for librarians

Update: LIANZA has writter to Stephen Joyce, NZ Minister of Communication and Information Technology, asking him to reconsider Sec 92a and expressing concern at the wide ranging potential of the definition of ISP.


The quote below was posted to the NZ- Libs the main NZ Library listserv.

Letter to Minsiter of Communication and Information Technology.

A letter was sent yesterday on behalf of LIANZA to the Minister for
Communications and Information Technology, expressing LIANZA's concerns
about:

(1) the extremely broad definition of internet service provider (it includes any person or organisation which has a website)

(2) the implication that ISPs will be required to act on accusations of illegal access of copyright materials by users (thereby reversing the legal principle that a person or organisation is deemed innocent until proved guilty)

(3) the provisions of section 92A, requiring ISPs to terminate the account of a repeat infringer (which, if the repeat infringer is a user illegally accessing or downloading in-copyright materials on a library public-access computer, may result in the library, and possibly also the organisation (e.g. council, university, school, etc) to which the
library is attached, to lose all Internet access).

The letter strongly recommends that:

(1) the definition of internet service provider be amended
(2) section 92A be repealed prior to the date of its implementation (28
February 2009).

We have posted a story about this on http://creativefreedom.org.nz/ ...but just to comment on a probably accidental use of language:

"if the repeat infringer is a user illegally accessing or downloading"

The issue is that it's allegedly illegal, not that it's deemed illegal by a court. Users connections and indeed library connections can be disconnected without any judge of illegality, without evidence being held to court scrutiny, and without any judicial oversight.

press schedules of Replica Rolex Watches exhibiting watch brands.To me, the real story at Lange this year was its entirely new UK Replica watches calibre inside the Lange 1, one of its entry-level models. Cartier, meanwhile, Replica Rolex watches produced an in-house movement that will eventually sell in watches priced at less than £4,000, and yet this was Designer handbags hardly mentioned in the press releases. And Audemars Piguet had some unbelievably creative new titanium Watches Replica.
