Submission NZ Illegal Downloading Crackdown Law in Effect->

sfranklin writes: "As of Sept 1 at midnight, "anyone caught downloading copyrighted content illegally could face fines of up to $15,000 and have their internet cut off" in New Zealand. You don't even have to do the deed yourself. The "account holder needs to know what's going on even if they themselves don't do anything online..." Scary stuff, although I wonder how much actual enforcement is likely to happen."
