+ - First three-strikes copyright court case in NZ falls over->

Submitted by Bismillah
Bismillah (993337) writes "The "Skynet" anti-filesharing aw introduced last year in New Zealand is starting to bite, with people being hauled in front of the Copyright Tribunal by the music industry after receiving three notices.

Of the three Copyright Tribunal cases to be heard currently, the first one's just been dropped. Why? Nobody knows. RIANZ isn't saying.

Interesting things: the accused was the ISP account holder, a student sharing a place with others who also used the Internet connection.

The cost of the five songs downloaded is NZ$11.95 but RIANZ wanted NZ$1,075.50 because it estimated the music was shared/downloaded 90 times in total.

A high deterrent penalty of NZ$1,250 was also asked for."
