Only 1.6% of New Zealanders support a new law’s provision requiring people to prove their innocence, or face penalties of up to $15,000 and internet disconnection, if accused of breaching copyright when transferring files.

Some 89% think authorities should have to prove a person has illegally transferred files before they are disconnected from the internet.

According to a new HorizonPoll survey of 1,922 people nationwide between April 15 and 22, 37.1% support the law to stop copyright breaches through file sharing, while 38.3% oppose.

With figures like that someone should seriously start asking New Zealands politicians who they are representing.  :gum:

I am sure that NZ is a democracy that adheres to the legal principle of 'Deemed innocent until proven guilty', not the reverse...
What you think is important is rarely urgent
But what you think is Urgent is rarely important

Just remember that...
