New Zealand Politican Tweets How She's Violating Copyright Law Night Before Supporting Three Strikes Copyright Law
from the you-did-what-now? dept
This is just bizarre. Andrew Dubber points us to the latest on the debate in New Zealand’s Parliament over the draconian new three strikes law, in which people will get kicked off the internet after accusations (not convictions) of file sharing. Dubber points us to the speech from Parliament Member Melissa Lee discussing her support of the new law. You can see it here:
Ok. Shower… Reading … And then bed! listening to a compilation a friend did for me of K Pop. Fab. Thanks Jay.
In the end, then, she seems to have no logical consistency at all. She’s happy to infringe on copyright when she gets to listen to good music. And she knows that infringement helped get artists attention and built up things like the Korean Wave of successful musicians… and yet New Zealand still needs to pass draconian copyright law to outlaw these things that she admits aren’t so bad. Say what now?
