Recently here in New Zealand a new internet piracy law stupidly coined as the "skynet" law came into action.
Its basically targeting torrent downloading of movies and music. If/when copyright holders of a material downloaded detect an infringement they
contact the Internet provider who issues an infringement notice. Three strikes and your out, then a possible fine of up to $15,000.
I knew the only people who would get caught up in this ridiculous law would be the not so internet 'savvy'.
So the first "infringement notices" have just been sent.
There are 7 so far and SIX of them are from the alleged downloading of Rihanna tracks!
So all of these internet pirates who have been caught so far are probably 10-18 year old girls who still live at home and use their parents internet.
Good work Skynet.
