The person named on the internet bill, not the person who physically clicks on the download icon. So mums, dads, holiday home owners, schools and universities are at risk of being pinged for their children's, guests' or students' illegal activities.

InternetNZ chief executive Vikram Kumar says the Government's approach is lazy. "Think of it like a street address. Instead of finding out who in the house has committed the crime, the blame will fall on the homeowner."

Small and medium businesses that can't afford top-of-the-range internet security could also be at risk if employees use work computers to download. What's worse, the onus is on the account holder to prove they did not hit click – the opposite of innocent until proven guilty.

sounds a bit draconian, though I don't think they fully grasp the mechanics of the p2p networks.

Sounds alot like traffic law here in my state......You borrow out your car to a friend or whoever, your responsible for their actions. If they hit someone in your car it's your fault and you pay!   :o

I CAN HANDLE IT!
