Government response?
To transfer part of them to public ownership.

The publicly owned Royal Mail runs into financial trouble.

New Zealand Copyright Protest

Join The New Zealand Internet BlackOut to protest against a law due on February 28th that calls for internet disconnection based on accusations of copyright infringement without a trial and without any evidence held up to court scrutiny.

"Sections 92A and C of the amended Copyright Act establish a guilt upon accusation principle that can see anyone accused of "copyright infringement" getting his or her Internet connection severed"

Black out your Facebook avatar, Your Myspace pages, your Twitter account, and websites to protest against the insane new law that may come into effect on February 28.
