+ - 1st stikes in New Zealand Anti Piracy Laws-> 1

Submitted by Master Moose
Master Moose (1243274) writes "New Zealand's Largest ISPs confirmed yesterday that they had received their first notices under the Government's new copyright regime, which came into effect on September 1.

All the notices received so far appear to be from the Recording Industry Association of New Zealand (Rianz).

Telecom received 42 notices — 35 for alleged download of songs by R&B star Rihanna, six for Lady Gaga tunes and one for British recording artist Taio Cruz.

Curiously the music rather than the movie industry has fired the first shot as it was believed the Motion Picture Association was keen to go after copyright infringers."
