Submission + - Three-strikes copyright law in NZ halves infringement ( 1

Bismillah writes: "The "Skynet" copyright act has been in effect for six months in New Zealand and rights holders reckon it halved the number of infringements in the first month.

Even so, they're not happy and say over forty per cent of Kiwis continue to infringe on line.

The fix? Rights holders want the current NZ$25 infringement notice processing fee payable to ISPs to be dropped to just a few dollars or even pennies, so that they can send out thousands of notices a month.

ISPs want the fee to increase four times instead, to cover their costs.

Unfortunately, the submissions for the review of the infringement notice fees are kept secret by the government."
