"The Internet Service Providers Association of New Zealand (ISPANZ) has called on the government not to enact a controversial new copyright provision, due to come into force on February 28. It says section 92A of the Copyright Amendment Act could see businesses lose their internet connections thanks to the actions of a single rogue employee."

Why aren't all the manufacturers of copying equipment since the audio tape, like dual audio cassette decks, dual vcr's, all taken to court?

Speaking from the music industry, where you clearly have no clue what you're talking about, I have much experience here.
'Pop-Stars' are actually thrown INTO debt to the production studios for simply MAKING THEIR ALBUM.
Every artist requires 'Buzz' to get their name around, and generate sales of this album. Costs the label a pretty penny, wouldn't you say?
Granted, the 'Pop Stars' DO usually take in a lot of money, but NOT through album sales. In the end they'll only reap a small percentage of said sales. The REAL money is in touring, where all your fans are there to hear you play your music.
